One thing is certain: if the ‘intelligence services’ wished to let ‘come out into the open’ all possible internal armed enemies, that could have been a future problem for Erdogan, and at the same time increasing his power and consent, this failed coup was the best expedient. (SyrianPatriots)
A Turkish minister accused the US authorities of organizing a military coup attempt in Turkey, Haberturk TV reported.
Turkish Labor Minister Süleyman Soylu claimed that Washington is behind the attempted coup in Turkey.
“The US is behind the coup attempt. A few journals that are published there [in the US] have been conducting activities for several months. For many months we have sent requests to the US concerning Fethullah Gulen. The US must extradite him,” he said.
Earlier in the day, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday requested his US counterpart Barack Obama to extradite Turkish opposition cleric Fethullah Gulen, who has been reportedly linked to the coup attempt.
