IT’S A COUP! Turkish Military To Government – “We’re In Control, We Want Secular Rule of Law”

This story just breaking. Trying to find out more information. Military jets over the bridges in Turkey. I hope it is a coup like it was in Egypt to oust Muslim Brotherhood.

From LA Times:

A group within Turkey’s military is engaged in what appears to be an attempted coup, the prime minister said Friday, with military jets flying over the capital and reports of vehicles blocking two major bridges in Istanbul.

Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told NTV, a private television news channel: “It is correct that there was an attempt,” when asked if there was a coup.

Yildirim didn’t provide details, but said Turkish officials would never allow any “initiative that would interrupt democracy.”

“We are focusing on the possibility of an attempt [coup],” Yildirim said. “There was an illegal act by a group within the military that was acting out of the chain of military command. Our people should know that we will not allow any activity that would harm democracy.”
