Turkey: Arrest warrants out for 27 FETO-linked suspects

Turkey has issued arrest warrants for 27 alleged members of FETO — the terror group behind the 2016 defeated coup — suspected of infiltrating the naval forces command, prosecutors announced on Friday.

Prosecutors in the capital Ankara said in a statement that warrants were issued for 27 suspects, including 11 active-duty officers, colonels, lieutenant colonels, commanders, and sergeants.

FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Turkey 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.
