State television channel TRT reports that four soldiers have been arrested for the coup attempt, including one who was high-ranked.
The Alliance for Shared Values (AfSV), a non-profit group linked to Turkish opposition cleric Fethullah Gulen, issued a statement condemning the attempt.
“We condemn any military intervention in [the] domestic politics of Turkey,” the statement reads.
