Turkish Police have conducted a raid on the branch of the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (İHH) in the southern city of Kilis.

Security units, which were allegedly anti-terror police coming from the eastern province of Van, have been searching the main office of the İHH and its depot since 6.30 a.m.

It was claimed that the Kilis governor and the Police Department had no information about the raid and the operation was launched by the order of the Van Public Prosecutors' Office.

The raid is part of simultaneous operations against al-Qaeda in six provinces including Istanbul, Van, Kilis, Adana, Gaziantep and Kayseri, daily Hürriyet reported.
