Highly-ranked military officials of the U.S. expressed concern over the ongoing clean-up in the Turkish army and other services and institutions in this country (RFE\RL). According to Director of the U.S. National Intelligence James R. Clapper and General of the U.S. Central Command Joseph Votel, this ‘cleansing process’ concerns many Turkish officers that were instrumental in fighting the ISIS; now some of them are in prison, which might harm the cause of fighting terrorism jointly.

‘This concerns all sectors of the apparatus of the national security in Turkey’, Clapper said.

Last week, Turkish leader Recep Tayip Erdogan announced that he would revise and re-evaluate the NATO’s second largest military power in Europe. On July 28, Erdogan took the army under his direct control.
