2 Policemen, 4 IS Militants Killed in Turkey

Two Turkish policemen and four Islamic State militants were killed in a firefight after police raided a house in Turkey’s southeast early on Monday, security sources said.
The clashes in the Kayapinar district of the mainly Kurdish city of Diyarbakir were ongoing, the sources said, Reuters reported.
Turkish authorities have extended operations into suspected Islamic State cells after a double suicide bombing in Ankara that killed more than 100 people–the worst attack of its kind in Turkey’s modern history–was blamed on the militant group.
Last week, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Kurdish militants, not just Islamic State, were behind the attack that targeted a rally of pro-Kurdish activists and civic groups.
Erdogan accused Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants, the Syrian secret police and the Syrian Kurdish PYD militia had worked together with Islamic State in the bombing on Oct. 10.
