Detention warrants have been issued for 70 Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ)-linked suspects in the military in Konya-based operations carried out in seven Turkish provinces, reports said Tuesday, Daily Sabah reported.

Police squads carried out simultaneous raids to detain 62 suspects in the Turkish Air Forces, four in the navy, and two in the gendarmerie.

The operations were reportedly carried out in Istanbul, Ankara, Kayseri, Izmir, Eskişehir and Yalova provinces.
