Today, the Turkish regime authorities arrested 81 people on the pretext of their involvement in the attempted coup in July 2016.
And the Anatolia News Agency, speaking on behalf of the Turkish regime, quoted a security source as saying that “the Public Prosecution in the capital, Ankara, issued arrest warrants for 125 people, including 29 who were dismissed or suspended from work in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 18 non-commissioned officers, and 78 students dismissed from military schools, and search and combing operations were launched during which 14 people were arrested in 15 Turkish provinces, in addition to the arrest of 67 others in raids in 37 provinces.
The source claimed that the detainees are linked to the organization of the Turkish preacher Fethullah Gulen, whom the regime of Recep Tayyip Erdogan accuses of being behind the coup attempt.
Erdogan's regime continues its crackdown campaigns against its opponents in various Turkish cities and regions. Over the past years, thousands of civilians and military personnel have been arrested, in addition to the dismissal or suspension of about 150,000 workers in the government, the army, the judiciary, education and other institutions.
