Security forces in Edirne, a northwestern city bordering with Greece, captured two Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) suspects on the border yesterday. Two men were accompanied by six others including their families when they were captured on the banks of Meriç River between Turkey and Greece.
Ali T. and İbrahim A. had outstanding arrest warrants for FETÖ membership, media outlets reported.
Due to its location at the gateway of Europe, Greece has been a popular destination both for migrants and fleeing FETÖ suspects after Turkey escalated a crackdown on the terrorist group in the wake of the 2016 coup attempt.
Turkish border security has stopped dozens of FETÖ suspects on the land border with Greece, while the Turkish Coast Guard has prevented a large number of the group's members from fleeing to the Greek islands near Turkish shores since the summer of 2016.
