On early Monday morning, two DHKP-C terrorists opened fire on the police team in front of the U.S. Consulate building in Istanbul. One of the suspect, a woman, was wounded during a police operation in a building near the consulate, where she was hidden and later caught, according to police.

No casualties have been reported.

The consulate has been closed to public until further notice, said a written statement released on the consulate’s twitter account.
