Turkey: Arrest warrants issued for 85 FETO suspects

World Bulletin / News Desk

An Istanbul prosecutor issued arrest warrants for 85 people Thursday, including six generals and 43 commissioned officers over suspected links with the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO).

Four suspects have already been taken into custody, said judicial sources who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media. 

Turkish police are currently conducting an operation across 15 provinces of Turkey to arrest the suspects, the sources added.

The Turkish government has said U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen had organized the July 15 coup attempt, which left 240 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Gulen, who has lived in self-imposed exile in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania since 1997, is also accused of running a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary, forming what is commonly known as the parallel state.
