The Turkish authorities have detained a key ally of the Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, whom they accused of attempting to commit an armed coup in the country, according to Reuters.
His assistant's name is Halis Hanji. It is noted that he is the "right hand" of Gulen. It is reported that he arrived in Turkey for two days before the coup attempt.
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that the presidential guard will be disbanded after the military coup in the country. It is reported by Ahaber.
"Presidential Guard will no longer exist, we have no such purpose or need," - he said.
Recall, due to the attempted coup in the country were detained 300 soldiers of the presidential guard.
