Turkish Armed Forces continue its resolute fight against the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) with its domestic and cross-border operations.

The state of emergency was announced in Turkey after FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

It was lifted on July 19, 2018 after two years.

Ankara accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
