FETO Turkey’s DAESH, Says Deputy PM
Numan Kurtulmus says Fetullah Terrorist Organization behind July 15 coup bid is no different from Daesh
He went on to say that FETO not only abused the religious sensitivities of the Turkish nation for many years, but also proved that it could “ruthlessly use weapons” against the people.
“The whole world saw how FETO used fighter jets, tanks, rifles and bombs on the evening of July 15 to slaughter our people,” he said.
The July 15 coup attempt martyred over 240 people and injured more than 2,100, leading to a nationwide probe to eliminate FETO sleeper cells which had infiltrated state institutions, including the judiciary and army.
Fetullah Gulen, who the Turkish government says heads FETO, has been living in Pennsylvania, U.S. since 1999.
