Turkish Defense Ministry: 3 FETO linked suspects nabbed near Turkey-Greece border
Three FETO linked suspects were caught while trying to illegally enter Greece, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.
“Our border units caught five people trying to cross into Greece illegally. Three of the captured individuals were identified as members of the FETO terrorist organization,” the Ministry tweeted.
Since May 2016, Turkey has classified the FETO organization as a terrorist organization 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.
