“Our goal is to help stop the bloodshed as soon as possible by maintaining the momentum gained in spite of the difficulties in the field.”
Seven suspects and the three others, all foreign nationals, were caught in simultaneous police operations.
The move is seen as Ankara’s push to rebrand the nation and dissociate its name from the popular American Thanksgiving dinner bird, turkey, and other unfavourable connotations.
The suspects include two active-duty officers, 28 military students, and two “private imams.”
Ankara blames the U.S. based Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen for orchestrating the abortive putsch.
So far, 53 of them were detained, and operations are underway to capture the rest.
