Turkey's police resumed the anti-terrorist operation in Istanbul, the Anadolu Agency said August 4.
The operation is aimed against the terrorist organization "Revolutionary People's Liberation Party-Front" (DHKP-C).
Some people have already been detained during the operation.

The DHKP-C members have also carried out a terrorist attack in the US embassy in Ankara, killing a security guard of the embassy and injuring another person.
