Turkish forces detain 34 FETÖ suspects

Turkish security forces on April 22 detained 34 suspects, including on-duty soldiers, for their alleged links to FETÖ, judicial sources said.         

Earlier, prosecutors in the capital Ankara issued arrest warrants for 50 suspects across Turkey as part of probes into the FETÖ's clandestine network within the military said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.         

Out of 50 suspects, 35 suspects are serving soldiers, they added.         

Police launched simultaneous operations across 24 provinces to nab the suspects.         

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