The Chief Public Prosecutors' Office in Istanbul issued arrest warrants on Friday for 38 people as part of a probe into the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) and its suspected infiltration of the judiciary system, according to a security source.

Police launched a nationwide operation in order to apprehend the suspects, including 13 lawyers, who are accused of being linked to the illegal network behind Turkey's defeated coup attempt in 2016, the source said on the condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media.

The Fetullah Terrorist Organization and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
