The Turkish Interior Ministry announced on Monday that at least 81 people were detained over the past week on charges of making propaganda on social media on behalf of the Gulen movement and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIL).
The ministry said investigations were launched against 395 social media users while only 81 of them were detained over the past week.
Also, a total of 920 people were detained across Turkey as part of investigations into the Gülen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding the July 15 coup attempt, over the past week. Those detained over links to the movement also included Mehmet Kanter, the father of NBA player Enes Kanter.
Meanwhile, law enforcement took into custody 25 people on alleged ties to what the government says leftist terrorist organizations.
Turkey survived a military coup attempt on July 15 that killed over 240 people and wounded more than a thousand others.
Immediately after the putsch, the AK Party government along with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement. The movement denies any involvement.
