Police conducted an Istanbul-based operation against the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) Wednesday leading to the detention of 21 suspectsç APA reports citing Daily Sabah.
Four others with outstanding arrest warrants remain at large.
Istanbul's organized crime and intelligence units raided several locations in the city as the culmination of an investigation. The investigation focused on so-called “gaybubet (absence) houses" of the terrorist group its members use as safe houses. These houses are used by wanted FETÖ members who often use forged IDs and rarely step out to avoid capture. Among those captured and wanted were suspects who were earlier dismissed from their jobs in the public and private sectors on the suspicion of affiliation with FETÖ.
