Turkish Police Arrest 28 FETO-Linked Terror Suspects

Suspects, including 21 active duty soldiers, are accused of having contacts with senior FETO members.

At least 28 people were arrested in the Turkish capital Ankara for their suspected links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup, judicial sources said on Tuesday.
This came after Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office issued arrest warrants for 34 suspects, including 21 active-duty soldiers, as part of probe into the terror group's infiltration of the Turkish Armed Forces.
The suspects are accused of having contacts with "covert imams" -- senior FETO members -- by pay phone.
Police carried out an operation and arrested 21 suspects, while a hunt for the remaining suspects is underway.
In a separate operation in Ankara, the police arrested two of 11 former judges and prosecutors, who were dismissed by the Supreme Council of Judges and Public Prosecutors on Monday for their links to the terror group.
The suspects had been identified from the testimony of other suspects benefiting from a repentance law.
Meanwhile, at least five more people were also arrested in the capital for their suspected links to the FETO.
This came after Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office issued arrest warrants for nine suspects, including seven former police officers.
FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, in which 251 people were martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.
Turkey 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.
