The Turkish prime minister warned Bosnia and Herzegovina that the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) could harm it as it did Turkey.

Bosnian Hayat TV broadcast Monday an interview conducted with Binali Yildirim last week during his visit.

Yildirim said FETO had also greatly damaged Islam.

He said FETO was active in Bosnia.

"You should never tolerate activities of FETO," Yildirim warned.

"They killed people ruthlessly and they destroyed all of our sacred values," he added.

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

Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
