Gendarmerie command units seized 570 kilograms (kg) of marijuana in an operation in the Mediterranean resort province of Antalya, said officials who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

In other major raids, the anti-narcotic branches of the police department confiscated 120 kg marijuana in the Aegean coastal province of Izmir, and 402 kg in southeastern Diyarbakir province, the police sources said on condition of anonymity.
