15 July in Turkey celebrating the anniversary of the coup attempts by the coup government made a year ago.
In July 2016, the Turkish military has conducted several air strikes on the Parliament building and other government institutions. Killed at least 260 people, but the coup attempt was suppressed.
After the failure of the coup on suspicion of links with the conspirators lost his job more than 150,000 people – soldiers, teachers, policemen, journalists, notes the BBC. Over the past year on suspicion of involvement in the coup attempt in the country have arrested more than 50 thousand people.
The organizer of the coup authorities believe living in the United States the theologian Fethullah gülen. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly said that he does not understand why the U.S. refuses to extradite Gulen Ankara.
«America should not harbour terrorists,» — said Erdogan. — United States – our friend and ally. They should not allow gülen to direct terrorist activities from its territory. There is no excuse».
Gulen himself denies any involvement in the July coup and is not afraid of what might be issued by the US authorities. «I am 77 years old, and I’m not afraid of death. To die as a hostage of the oppressor, and to stand before the Creator – it is an honor for me.»
