World Bulletin / News Desk

Istanbul police on Thursday headed an operation to arrest almost 60 suspects linked to the Fetullah Terror Organization (FETO) at 66 addresses across 16 Turkish provinces, according to security sources.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said police were searching for 58 suspects including Osman Hilmi Ozdil, allegedly responsible for FETO’s police structure.

Suspects also include security force members, research assistants, teachers and engineers, the sources added.

Led by U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen, FETO is accused of orchestrating Turkey’s July 15 coup plot as well as being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.

The July 15 defeated coup left 248 people killed and 2,193 others wounded.
