Turkish Defense Ministry: FETO linked suspect nabbed near Turkey-Greece border
A FETO linked suspect was caught while trying to illegally enter Greece, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Thursday.
“Our fight against terrorism continues also on our borders. Three people who were trying to cross into Greece illegally were nabbed by our border units in Edirne province. One of the captured individuals was identified as a member 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.
