A total of 265 people have been suspended from the gendarmerie and the Turkish Coast Guard for suspected links to the Fetullah Terror Organizaton (FETO), the Interior Ministry said Friday.

The ministry announced the suspensions of 153 people in the gendarmerie and 112 others in the Coast Guard.

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 241 people martyred and some 2,200 injured.
