Police put a gun to the head of a 3-year-old child in Amed

Turkish police officers raided a house in Amed and put a gun to the head of a 3-year-old child.

Turkish police officers raided the house of the Teke family in Kayapınar, Amed this morning.

Police, who searched the house without giving any reason for it, detained 17-year-old Tirej Teke.

It was reported that police put a gun to the head of 3-year-old Civan.

Tirej Teke was taken to the Juvenile Branch of Diyarbakır Police Department.

His mother Nezahat Teke explained what happened: "The doorbell rang. We were surprised that the bell was ringing because normally police break through the door. My child was going to school when the police came. They put a gun to the head of my son and forced him on the ground. I told them he was only a 17-year-old student. This is a persecution. My grandchild was at home as well. They put a gun to my grandchild too. They did not find anything. They seized my son's phone and they took him away and left. What can a child do? I do not accept this persecution."
