Three years after the attempted coup, the government launched another round of arrests. Eight journalists received court orders to return to prison to complete earlier sentences. Arrest warrants were served for 210 military officers and more than 40 policemen. All are said to have connections to US-based Turkish Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, who the government claims was the mastermind behind the attempted coup. Pray for all these men and women to turn to the Lord right now, and find Jesus during their trials (The Bible, Leviticus 19:15).
