    A Turkish court handed life sentences early Wednesday to three former soldiers for FETO links.

    Ex-Brigadier Commander Hasan Polat, ex-regiment commander Col. Etem Metehan Yasar and ex-commander Col. Kadir Ayhan were given aggravated life imprisonment by the Hatay 2nd Heavy Penal Court for "attempt to overthrow constitutional order".

    Twenty-seven other suspects were given jail terms ranging from 3-16 years.

    Ten other suspects were acquitted.

    FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup attempt of July 15, 2016 which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.
