ANKARA, July 22. /TASS/. July 15 will be observed in Turkey as day of remembrance in honor of the victims of the attempted coup, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters on Friday.
"Eighty-one provinces and 79 million citizens continue to resist the most insidious and despicable coup attempt in our history that occurred on July 15. I would like to share with you that we have declared this date the annual Day of remembrance for those killed, "Turkey’s NTV television quotes Erdogan as saying. The president also urged the population "not to succumb to provocations and not to listen to gossip trusting only the official information from the government."
The president recalled that the coup attempt was carried out by members of the Gulen movement led by opposition cleric Fethullah Gulen. "As part of special operations, 10,400 people were detained and 4,060 arrested. The government and security forces continue their work and urge our nation to remain vigilant on guard for democracy," Erdogan said.
A group of insurgents attempted to stage a coup in Turkey overnight on July 16. The capital Ankara and the country's largest city, Istanbul, turned into the main scenes of the standoff. The Turkish government said on Sunday the coup had been suppressed. The Turkish authorities declared a three-month state of emergency on July 21 to neutralize the threats posed by putschists. The latest reports indicate the violent events claimed the lives of 190 Turkish citizens and more than a hundred mutineers. About 1,500 people were wounded.
