Is anyone actually going to miss this guy? The Turkish government still refuses to actually admit it a coup, but by all accounts and appearances, that’s exactly what it is.
Via Daily Mail:
The Turkish military has started a coup to depose the nation’s government according to prime minister Binali Yildirim. Istanbul’s Bosphorus Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge were both closed on Friday, local television channels reported, without giving a reason…
CNN Turkey showed two military vehicles and a group of soldiers lined up at the entrance of one of the bridges in Turkey’s biggest city. A Turkish official who did not want to be named said soldiers had been deployed in other cities in Turkey, but did not specify which ones.
Dogan News Agency reported the national police directorate summoned all police to duty in Ankara.
Turkish fighter jets have been reported over Ankara. Gunfire has been reported.
Yildirim on Friday denounced what he said was an ‘illegal attempt’ by elements in the military after bridges were partially shut down in Istanbul and jets flew low over Ankara. ‘We are working on the possibility of an attempt. We will not allow this attempt,’ he told NTV television by telephone, without expanding on the nature of the move but saying it was by a group in the Turkish military.
