During this study, operations were performed approximately on 150-200 addresses. 50 people were taken into custody during these operations. Together with the terrorist, 197 thousand US dollars, two pistol magazines, one of these is air gun, the pistol and two sim cards were seized. The terrorist accepted his offense. At the same time, the fingerprint examination was also compliant."
