A MASSIVE police operation is underway across Sydney's south west with five men arrested over a drive-by shooting and series of other crimes.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal that police have moved in on the bikie-gang members, over a July 21 shooting at Old Guildford.

Tactical police are currently raiding homes at Bankstown, Punchbowl and Merrylands.

That shooting saw a number shots fired between three men in Broughton Street with a woman suffering minor injuries after a stray bullet entered her home.

Strike Force Sevenoak from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Force has been investigating the incident, but has been working with several other strike forces, including from the Homicide Squad.

The Daily Telegraph will release further details on those matters later today.

Two men have already been charged in relation to the Old Guildford shooting, which is believed to have been the catalyst for several other crimes across Sydney.


One of those men, Bilal Haouchar, 26, was extradited from Queensland on Wednesday, along with the national president of the Comanchero, Mark Buddle.
