OIC declares FETO terrorist organization

World Bulletin / News Desk

A draft regulation that was prepared in July has been passed declaring FETO, linked to the Turkish coup, a terrorist organisation.

At the preparatory meeting in Jeddah, the draft resolution was approved by all OIC member-state representatives present except that of Egypt, who expressed Cairo’s reservations to the move citing "legal reasons".

Ankara accuses Gulen’s FETO movement of orchestrating a coup attempt on July 15 in which FETO-linked military personnel attempted -- unsuccessfully -- to overthrow Turkey’s elected government.

At least 246 people, including civilians and security personnel, were killed-- and more than 2,100 injured -- during the illegal putsch attempt.

Gulen and his followers are also accused of attempting to infiltrate Turkey’s vital state institutions -- especially the military, police apparatus and judiciary -- with the ultimate aim of creating a parallel state.
