The failed military coup in Turkey has left 290 people killed (190 civilians and 100 coup plotters) and more than 1,400 were wounded in the coup attempt that swept the country on Friday night but was foiled by Saturday morning. 6,000 plus have been detained due to their involvement in the failed coup.
The statement said it was the cleric Fethullah Gulen that staged this coup attempt.
“Our government has been constantly exposing the real motives of this terrorist group and its leader, Fethullah Gulen, to all allies and partners. The foiled coup is the latest criminal act revealing the danger posed by Fethullah Gulen Terrorist Organisation,” as per Turkey’s Foreign Ministry.
