Turkish police on Friday launched a pre-dawn anti-terrorist operation in Istanbul, arresting more than 30 people suspected of helping the Islamic State (IS) group to recruit militants in Europe.
Multiple addresses in Istanbul were targeted in the raid, including an apartment on Temaşa Street in the Yıldız Tabya neighborhood of the Gaziosmanpaşa district.
Suspects detained in the early morning raids were sent to the Haseki Training and Research Hospital in the Fatih district for a health check-up and then sent to the Istanbul Police Department for questioning.
Police took intense security measures around the central apartment building during the search.
