Six suspects were arrested in four simultaneous raids in different parts of the city, the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said.

In western Balikesir province, two suspects were remanded in custody for allegedly selling drugs, sources added.

Twelve other suspects were also arrested during anti-narcotics operations in other parts of Turkey.
