A coup attempt took place in Turkey on July 15, 2016 with some of the soldiers as well as state officials which is failed due to the resistance of the citizens of Turkey. Millions of citizens hit to streets to stop this attempt which was organized by putschist, leader of the terrorist organization FETO, Fethullah Gulen.
However Fethullah Gulen rejects the accusations although government of Turkey found thousands of evidences as well as intelligence through their intelligence service, MIT. Turkey began to negotiations with US to let them deliver the terrorist leader Fethullah Gulen who stated he, “damns the coup for thousands times, those who came to power with democratic procedures cannot be disposed together with anti-democratic ways”.
The traitors bombed the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, Chief of Staff and many other military bases with F-16 type warplanes. They even attempted to assassinate the president of the republic, Recep Tayyip Erdogan however he managed to change its location 15 minutes before the raid. Erdogan directly flied to Istanbul while his aide advised him to contact with Germany and Greece for asylum application. He denied this offer by telling, “I am the president of the republic, my place is next to my public”
It is clearly not an ordinary coup attempt. This is why President Erdogan makes a different statement and talks about the “occupation forces”.
It is a fact that terrorists who attempted to coup are the members of terrorist organization FETO. However there are some “other officers” who were persuaded to attempt coup due to their opposition. The details of the unity will be revealed soon however the following question matters more: “Does these terrorist have any external support?”
This coup attempt lead to the death of at least 240 people on July, 15, thousands of discharge, trauma, unrest and anxiety in the community. Another distinctive feature of the previous coups is the dimensions of the violence used by the putschists.
Human rights violations, torture and lawlessness came after the coup reached its purpose in the previous coups however war planes, tanks, helicopters are used as they were in war in this coup attempt.
According to former soldier and politician Ismail Hakkı Pekin, “terror means creating violence to scare people to ensure them to say nothing and take them to their sides.” Pekin added, “This means that if you want to seize the power or change the regime and you do not have enough power you suppress people by making the perception operation with the use of violence. Or you bring people to situation which they will say no words”
Labour and Social Security Minister Suleyman Soylu talked about the delivery of the leader of FETO terrorist organization and said, “I do not personally agree with the understanding that hold the psycho called Fethullah Gulen for its ambitions. We did not offer to US anything but our friendship. If they are sincere, it is time for US to show the same friendship by delivering the terrorist leader to us.”
