Police teams armed with machine guns raided a house in Turkey’s Mersin province where suspected followers of the Gulen group are thought to be residing. The Bold medya news portal said they found a 25-year-old bankbook and two United States one-dollar bills.
The raid was a part of an ongoing investigation regarding 12 people who are accused of “giving moral and financial support” to the families of Gülenist purge-victims.
Turkey survived a military coup attempt on July 15, 2016 that killed 249 people and wounded more than a thousand others.
Immediately after the putsch the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) government along with President Tayyip Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen group, which denied any involvement.
