Twelve people have been arrested in a series of dawn raids across Rochdale.
It's part of an investigation into an axe attack in October 2017, where a man suffered serious hand injuries.
Police targeted 11 addresses across the borough this morning. 11 men and one woman were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
They remain in custody for questioning.
A 19-year-old man was left with life changing injuries after being brutally attacked with an axe and today’s raids are hopefully a step towards finding those responsible and showing people how seriously we take these violent crimes.

Police are appealing for information after a firework was thrown through a letterbox in Bury.
Officers were called to reports of arson on Spring Street in the early hours of December 30.
A couple had been sleeping when they were awoken by a loud noise downstairs.
They found a lit firework had been pushed through their letterbox.
It went off in the house, but no one was hurt.
Fireworks can be incredibly dangerous in the wrong hands and it’s not difficult to imagine the destruction that could have been caused if the firework set alight in their home.
We are treating this arson very seriously and are following a number of lines of enquiry, but we still need your help.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.

Detectives searching for a missing woman from Altrincham have released images of a couple that may hold key information.
Marie Scott, 57, was last seen at around 12 pm on Monday 18 December on Sandileigh Avenue in Hale. She is described as 5 ft 4 ins tall with mid-length blonde hair.
Officers know she boarded a 12.30 pm train at Altrincham station the same day she went missing and got off at Deansgate in the city centre at 12.54 pm. From there she made her way along Deansgate to outside Blacks clothes store where she spoke to a couple at about 1.07 pm.
Detectives have released CCTV images of the moment Marie spoke with the couple in the hope of identifying and speaking to them. Police want to stress that the man and woman are not in trouble, but they may have information that could lead them to Marie.
“It might be that Marie asked you for directions or you had a really general conversation - whatever it was we could really do with knowing anything that might lead us to her. So if this is you and you remember stopping to speak to a woman on Deansgate that day, please contact us immediately."
Detectives say Marie went to Castlefield shortly after Deansgate, and they'd also like to hear from anyone who remembers seeing here there.
Anyone with information about Marie’s whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101. Reports can also be made anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Burglars have stolen laptops and iPads worth tens of thousands of pounds from a primary school.
Classrooms at St Mary’s RC Primary School in Levenshulme were ransacked and damaged by thieves who took 30 new Acer Chromebook laptops and 48 iPad minis.
It’s the second time the school has been burgled this year. Thieves had stolen valuable laptops on the first day of the summer holidays. Many of those taken in Thursday night’s burglary were replacements.
It’s understood the break-in happened at around 6.20 pm on Thursday 29th December and the burglars are believed to have been inside the building for around an hour. Greater Manchester Police has confirmed it has received a report of a break-in and is waiting for updates.
"The school is an absolute mess. They clearly knew what they were doing. Watching them back on CCTV, you can see them getting a step ladder out of a very specific cupboard. They knew where the alarm was. They were clearly very organised."
