At least 29 people, including nine minors, have been detained in anti-terror operations across Turkey on Monday.

Anti-terror police raided number of properties in Istanbul’s Gaziosmanpasa and Sultangazi districts, looking for alleged members of the terrorist PKK’s youth wing.

Fifteen people were detained on charges of making propaganda for the PKK and insulting state officials.

During the raid, police seized one pistol, three shotguns and ammunition.

Additionally, 12 people in Turkey’s central Eskisehir province and two people in Istanbul have been detained as a result of an Eskisehir-based investigation, the city's governor Gungor Aziz Tuna said on Monday.

In southern Adana province, police detained number of people during an operation against the PKK.

Those operations come after a bomb attack killed at least 37 people in the capital city Ankara on Sunday.
