Violent clashes erupted between pro-Kurdish protesters and police in the mostly Kurdish district of Gazi in Istanbul on Sunday, after authorities continued raiding homes in search of suspected members of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). Gazi residents took to the streets as Turkish police deployed water cannon and fired tear gas at the protesters, who in turn threw Molotov cocktails at police vehicles and built barricades, setting some on fire.
