Baku, July 16, AZERTAC
A group within the Turkish military has taken illegal action outside chain of command in an attempted coup, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said early Saturday, according to Anadolu Agency.
“I am calling on our nation. Go to squares, let us give them the best answer,” Erdogan said on video message from a cell phone that was broadcast on a cell phone connection from what appeared to be a private residence. “I do not believe this coup attempt will be successful. No coup-plotter in history has ever succeeded,” he said.
Turks have apparently responded by pouring into the streets across the nation.
