Turkey issues arrest warrants for 304 FETO suspects
Suspects include active-duty soldiers accused of communication with senior FETO members

By Meric Urer

IZMIR, Turkey (AA) - Turkish authorities Tuesday issued arrest warrants for 304 people over their alleged links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup.

Prosecutors in the western Izmir province issued warrants for the suspects, including 295 on-duty personnel of the Turkish Land Forces and Air Forces Command.

The suspects are accused of communicating by payphone with "covert imams” who are senior FETO members.

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