Currently, the operation to arrest the rebels continues. The number of detainees in the case of a coup in Turkey will exceed 6 thousand people. Such a statement on Sunday, July 17 made the Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag, reports the agency "Anadolu".
"At the moment the operation to clean up the military ranks continues. Number of detainees may exceed six thousand people - the process continues.." - Bozdag said.
Also, commenting on the request for extradition of Imam-oppositionist Gulen, which Turkish President Erdogan accused of coup attempt, the head of the Ministry of Justice said: "Defending him, America would weaken its position and harm its own credibility. In light of recent events I do not think that the US will take care of the man- organizer of actions against Turkey. "
