  • Some 18,632 people have been sacked including 8,998 police officers 3,077 army soldiers

A total of 18,632 Turkish state employees have been dismissed from their posts by a statutory decree under Turkey's state of emergency over their links with terror groups, according to the official gazette Sunday.

The 11th hour decree dismissed about 9,000 police personnel, over 6,000 army officials, 200 academics and about 650 teachers.

No organizations were named in the emergency decree, but government authorities have targeted supporters of Fetullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric residing in the United States who is accused of fomenting the coup, as well as sympathizers of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK.

Another 1,052 civil servants from the justice ministry and related institutions have also been dismissed, as well as 649 from the gendarmerie and 192 from the coastguard.

Sunday's decree also reinstated 148 people previously sacked through emergency decrees.

Gulen, who lives in self-imposed exile in the U.S., has denied any involvement in the coup, in which more than 200 people were killed.

Turkey regularly carries out such operations as part of a large-scale government crackdown on Gulen's movement.

The dismissals came the day before President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was to be sworn in for his second term, following his victory in last month's presidential election.

"The new government will be announced on Monday, the cabinet will start to work and the state of emergency will be completed", outgoing Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said last week, although he reiterated that the latest extension was due to end mid-July.

More than 75,000 people have been arrested for alleged links to Gulen.

About 1052 199 civil servants and scientists were also fired and at least three Newspapers, the channel 12 and associations were closed.
