Nebil Ehlil was a Turk who killed ten people and seriously wounded six others in İshaklar, a village near Gülnar, Turkey on April 16, 1969.

Ehlil, who had been released from a prison in Istanbul four months prior, wanted to marry a woman named Rahime Şahin, but her family objected to the union. On the morning of April 16 he repeated his proposal, and when he was rejected again, he took a gun and wounded Rahime, as well as her father Kadir, and killed her mother Ümmü. The 23-year-old then proceeded to attack other people in the village who had disagreed with his relationship, until he was shot dead by police. His brother-in-law Mustafa Kark was afterwards arrested under the suspicion of having been Ehlil's accomplice.[1][2][3][4]
