Turkey: Suicide Bomb Wounds 7 During Raid On Islamic State Safehouse


An explosion wounded at least seven people on Sunday in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep, Reuters reported.

The blast is believed to have been caused by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosives during a police raid on a suspected Daesh safehouse.

Several police officers were hospitalized following the blast, hospital officials told Reuters.

Earlier on Sunday Turkey-backed rebels in Syria said they had captured the village of Dabiq from Daesh, the prophetic setting of an end-of-days battle.

Turkey has launched military incursions into Syria and Iraq in attempt to push militant groups away from its borders.
