An explosion wounded at least seven people on Sunday in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep, Reuters reported.

The blast is believed to have been caused by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosives during a police raid on a suspected Daesh safehouse.

Several police officers were hospitalized following the blast, hospital officials told Reuters.

Earlier on Sunday Turkey-backed rebels in Syria said they had captured the village of Dabiq from Daesh, the prophetic setting of an end-of-days battle.

Turkey has launched military incursions into Syria and Iraq in attempt to push militant groups away from its borders.
