Counterterrorism units from the Mardin Provincial Police Department raided a shelter in the Artuklu district, according to the source who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media. A second terrorist was also killed in the district of Kızıltepe. Officials have launched operations to capture terrorists in the region.
