According to the official, the majority of the arrested servicemen are junior officers.
Earlier, the Turkish Interior Ministry reported that Turkish law enforcement have detained 754 servicemen who were involved in the failed military coup attempt in the country, including five generals and 29 colonels.
The detained individuals have been stripped of their military titles, according to the ministry.

The military attempted to use helicopters and tanks to overthrow the Turkish leadership.
According to the state-run Anadolu agency, at least 90 people were killed amid the military coup attempt in Turkey. The victims include civilians and military servicemen.
The coup attempt was led by Col. Muharrem Kose, a former Turkish military officer who was dishonorably discharged in March 2016 for his alleged association with anti-government and US-based Imam Fethullah Gulen.

Gulen's movement known as Hizmet, once claimed as many as 2,000 officers within the Turkish military prior to crackdowns by President Erdogan. Supporters of Gulen have long attempted to use the judiciary to advance corruption investigations against Erdogan sparking a bitter divide between the two groups. Turkish authorities accuse Gulen of attempting to form an opposing "state within a state" known by many in Turkey as the "Parallel Structure."
