Turkish intelligence nabs FETÖ terror group member abroad
It was learned that Selahaddin Gülen, who is a relative of FETÖ’s ringleader Fetullah Gülen, fled abroad with the help of the terror group’s covert structure, said a security source who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
Gülen, who was being sought for being a member of an armed terror group, is also learned to be related to the so-called advisory committee members and senior members of the terror group.
He had escaped the country on the instructions of the terror group’s ringleader.
FETÖ and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gülen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people dead and 2,734 injured.
Ankara also accuses FETÖ of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
