Gürdal T., the leader of Gülenist terror group (FETÖ)-linked officers embedded in the ranks of Turkish Air Forces, was detained in Ankara late Thursday, police sources said.
FETÖ, led by U.S.-based Fetullah Gülen, orchestrated the July 15 failed coup attempt and infiltrated Turkish state institutions, especially the military, police apparatus and judiciary, with the ultimate aim of creating a parallel state.
The attempt was prevented by military troops loyal to the government, along with police units and millions of Turkish citizens in favor of democracy. A total of 250 people, consisting of mostly civilians, were killed by pro-coup soldiers, while over 2,000 people were injured.
In the wake of the deadly coup attempt, tens of thousands of public sector personnel, including civil servants, teachers, police, judges and prosecutors have been removed from their jobs.
