3 FETO terror suspects nabbed across Turkey


ANTALYA, Turkey 

Security forces on Wednesday arrested three suspects across Turkey over alleged links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup in Turkey.

Anti-terror police in Antalya conducted an operation to uncover the terror group’s activities, and arrest its members.

As a result, at least three suspects were nabbed in the Mediterranean province, and northwestern Balikesir province.

FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and 2,734 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.
