Turkey has brought back 80 Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) members from abroad so far, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Sunday.

Speaking at the 6th ordinary congress of his Justice and Development (AK) Party in Istanbul, Erdoğan said: “We’ve brought 80 FETO [terrorists] back from abroad so far. We will chase them [the remaining ones] as well.”

Referring to U.S.-based FETÖ leader Fetullah Gülen, he said: “You, who are in Pennsylvania, will also come.”
Last week, Turkish intelligence officers brought three senior Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) members to Turkey following an anti-terror operation against the group in Gabon, a Central African country, security sources said.

In March, Turkish intelligence officers also brought the six senior FETÖ members back to Turkey following operations against the terror group’s branch in the Balkans, according to security sources.

In cooperation with Kosovo’s intelligence agency, Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT) arrested the six men, who were said to be in charge of getting FETÖ members out of Turkey and into Europe and the U.S. alongside their activities in the Balkans.

FETÖ and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated July 2016 defeated coup in Turkey which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

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