ISTANBUL - Seven people have been taken into custody after police conducted anti-terror raids in Istanbul's Okmeydani district.

The helicopter-assisted operation on Monday targeted people suspected of being members of leftist terror group Patriotic Revolutionary Youth Movement (YDG-H).

Seven YDG-H members were detained on suspicion of participating in illegal demonstrations, damaging public property and setting public buses on fire, anti-terror police sources told the Anadolu Agency.

Sources said security forces were searching for four other YDG-H members.
