A Greek court has ruled on Tuesday to extradite three alleged Turkish coup plotters seeking asylum in the country, according to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency .

On Monday, the Greek Appeals Court had decided against the extradition of three other Turkish soldiers suspected of being involved in the July 15 coup attempt. Two remaining soldiers still await the court's decision.  

Eight soldiers arrived in Greece on a highjacked Black Hawk helicopter, a few hours after the failed July 15 coup attempt which left 248 martyred and more than 2,000 injured. 

All of them requested asylum in Greece. Their primary requests were initially denied by a Greek court. 

The Turkish government has repeatedly requested the extradition of the eight alleged coup plotters, promising to provide fair trials.
