Detention warrants were issued for 23 active and 3 dismissed military officers over their alleged ties to the Gulen movement on Tuesday.

The Canakkale-based investigation targets the allegedly secret network of the movement within the army, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency.

Turkish government blames Gulenists for the July 15, 2016 failed coup while the group denies involvement.

More than 150,000 have passed through police custody and 90,000 have been arrested over ties to the movement since the summer of 2016.
