41 FETO-linked suspects arrested in Ankara-based operation
Turkish police on Friday detained 41 suspects over alleged ties to the FETO organization in Ankara-based operations.
The suspects were rounded up after prosecutors in Ankara issued arrest warrants for 66 people as part of an investigation into the group's secret structure in the Gendarmerie General Command
So far, 41 suspects have been arrested as efforts to capture 25 other suspects are ongoing, according to Ankara provincial police department.
Since May 2016, the FETO organization has been classified as a terrorist organization by Turkey under the assigned names Fethullahist Terrorist Organization and Parallel State Structure.
After the failed coup attempt in 2016, the government of Turkey blamed the group for the coup and authorities have arrested thousands of soldiers and judges who have links to the organization.
