MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, WikiLeaks promised to publish data on Turkey’s political power structure following the failed coup against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
"Our infrastructure is under sustained attack. #TurkeyPurge #Turkey… We are unsure of the true origin of the attack. The timing suggests a Turkish state power faction or its allies. We will prevail & publish," WikiLeaks tweeted.
Late on Friday, the Turkish authorities said that an attempted coup was taking place in the country. The coup attempt was suppressed by early Saturday, with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stating that all coup supporters had been identified and would be apprehended as the country was returning to normal life. Thousands of judiciary and senior civil service members have been removed from office in Turkey and thousands of military personnel were arrested.
