Additionally, almost 3,000 military personnel have been detained by Erdogan's government and the colonels and generals involved in the coup have been fired. The president said faction leaders will "pay a heavy price."

Analysts following the coup attempt are noting how prepared Erdogan seems to be - much more so than the plotters. 

Still, Erdogan acknowledged another coup attempt could occur at any time.
