Erdogan continues to drop the hammer and clean house in Turkey as now according to new reports; Turkey has dismissed nearly 1,700 military personnel and closed more than 130 media outlets. This news comes amid a deepening crackdown that has stirred alarm among Ankara’s NATO allies following this month’s failed coup. Erdogan has already reportedly been responsible for a total of 1,684 military personnel that have been dishonorably discharged.
