Erdogan Still Making Mass Arrests in Fethullah Plot – Three Years Later

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has apparently discovered a sector he overlooked as he carried out thousands of arrests of those, he deems to have been part of a 2016 coup d’état that failed. Almost three years after surviving the attempt to overthrow him, Erdogan is decimating the ranks of the military again, this time arresting 63 more, 46 of whom are army helicopter pilots serving on active duty. Since the incident, Erdogan has arrested “tens of thousands” of people, many of whom are military or are journalists, as part of his crackdown. He still blames the Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, who lives in a self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, for orchestrating the coup despite denials from Gulen. Arrest raids are said to be taking place virtually every day.
