The Turkish government has ousted 257 staffers from the Prime Minister’s office following the failed  coup attempt, Hurriyet has reported.

The staffers’ property were confiscated.

Late on July 15, the Turkish government said that a coup attempt was taking place in the country. The Erdogan regime repelled the attempt by early Saturda. Thousands of military, judiciary and civil service members have been detained or removed from the office in Turkey.

Turkish President has accused Fethullah Gülen of orchestrating the failed coup and called on the United States to extradite him to Turkey. Gulen has denied any involvement in the coup attempt.
