Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's Office issued Saturday arrest warrants for 20 suspects as part of an anti-Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) probe, according to judicial sources.

The sources who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media said an Istanbul-based operation was launched in ten provinces including Bursa, Diyarbakir, Ankara, Gaziantep, Igdir, Mugla, Antalya, Edirne and Sirnak for 14 high-ranking soldiers and six FETO members.

According to Turkey’s government, FETO leader Fetullah Gulen masterminded the July 15 defeated coup, which left 248 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara has also said FETO is behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.

In the wake of the coup attempt, tens of thousands FETO suspects have been arrested, including many in the armed forces, police, judiciary, and education sector.
