 Turkey's Armed Forces will employ some 43,000 new people in 2018, a military source told to the Turkish state news agency Anadolu Agency (AA).

It is emphasized that Turkey's Ministry of Defense continues to work to hire qualified and educated personnel.

The source said that the total of 8,565 staff members, including 150 generals, 4,630 officers, 2,167 non-commissioned officers, 1,210 specialized sergeants and contracted soldiers, as well as 411 civil servants and workers, are expelled for their connection with the FETO terrorist organization after the coup attempt in July 2016.
