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.
