Overseas Network September 24, local time 24, the Turkish government ordered the arrest of 61 soldiers, including senior officers, the Navy and army forces are involved, because these soldiers are suspected of being linked to Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen (Fethullah Gulen). The government of Turkey said that the man had planned an attempted military coup in Turkey in 2016.

Reuters quoted Turkey's Anadoro news agency as saying that 18 of the soldiers arrested were servicemen, as well as 13 major and 24 lieutenants in the army.

In July 2016, some officers of the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces attempted to launch a military coup in which 265 people were killed, including 161 civilians and police, 104 rebel soldiers and 1 440 wounded, in an attempted coup less than 24 hours. Later, the government thought that Glen, who lived in Pennsylvania, was responsible for the incident.

Since the July 2016 military coup, the government of Turkey has regularly searched the staff concerned with Glen. Turkish police said that in a previous operation, 21 people were arrested for sending encrypted messages through Gram. Most of them are teachers in public schools or public institutions.

When the attempted coup d'etat of 2016 occurred, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan ordered a severe crackdown and declared a state of emergency until July 2018. During this period, Turkey's Western allies have repeatedly criticized Erdogan for suppressing domestic dissent against him under the pretext of the failed coup d'etat. But El said that it is necessary to combat the threat of national security.

Glen denied that the coup was planned. Fatura Gram, a Turkish Islamic thinker born in 1941, had great influence in Central Asian countries. (overseas network Wei Xuewei)
