‘Gulen plotting artificial earthquakes’

The US-based cleric who was blamed for last year’s failed coup attempt in Turkey could be plotting earthquakes in the region, the mayor of Ankara suggested on Tuesday.

Fethullah Gulen, who had allegedly planned an earthquake before, could be behind recent tremors felt in Turkey, Mayor Melih Gokcek claimed in a series of tweets published on Twitter.

“No matter what they say, we continue to worry about the possibility of an artificial earthquake,” Gökçek wrote, accusing “the Gulenist terrorist organisation (FETO) of previously attempting quakes”.
