An Important Milestone in Turkish Democracy
We are commemorating the fifth anniversary of the failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016. The people of Turkey, from all backgrounds and political views, resisted and displayed historic solidarity as they stood together and reclaimed their democratic rights. Sadly, 251 Turkish citizens lost their lives and 2193 were wounded.
The Presidency’s Directorate of Communications will tell the stories of citizens who were martyred in the July 15 coup attempt to the international public in English, through a live broadcast from the July 15 Monuments in İstanbul and Ankara.
