During the police operations, the dismissed personnel were found to be members of, or linked to, “terror” groups, structures and entities that act against national security, according to a decree published in the Official Gazette of Turkey.
At least, 360 officials were dismissed from the General Command of Gendarmerie Forces. Also, 61 officials from the Turkish National Police and four others from the Coast Guard Command were expelled.
In the new decree, it reinstated 115 people who had been dismissed from their jobs earlier.
Around 341 officials from the Directorate of Religious Affairs have been dismissed, while 18 others were reinstated to the directorate.
Turkey has been embroiled in a state of emergency since last year, as the dreaded terror organisation has repeatedly targeted civilians in suicide bombs, rocket and gun attacks.
Turkish security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to arrest people with suspected links with the dreaded terrorist group and to ultimately, stop such attacks. (ANI)
