Police capture two would-be ISIL suicide bombers in Adana
ADANA – Doğan News AgencyPolice in the Seyhan district of the southern province of Adana carried out an operation at an apartment after it received a tip-off that two alleged Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants were residing there, detaining seven people.
Two of the militants who were suspected of being potential ISIL suicide bombers were captured in the house in the Yeşilyurt neighborhood of the district, which is also known as “İbo Osman,” while five other suspects were caught in operations at other addresses in the same operation.
In one recent ISIL operation, three police officers were killed and eight others were wounded on Oct. 16 in an explosion that occurred when an ISIL militant detonated himself during a raid on a house in the Şahinbey district of the southeastern province of Gaziantep, while another suspect also detonated himself during a separate operation in the province.
The raid came after Gaziantep police received information about a cell that was suspected of plotting a suicide bomb attack on an Alevi cultural association center in the city.
