Erdogan to eradicate ‘separatist & terrorist’ infiltrators, inject army with ‘fresh blood’

The upcoming meeting of the Supreme Military Council might bring about significant restructuring of the military. “Within a very short amount of time a new structure will be emerging,” Erdogan said. “With this new structure, I believe the armed forces will get fresh blood.”

The president also reiterated his commitment to continuing a crackdown on the opposition, especially on followers of US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, who the Turkish government blames for the coup attempt.
