Addressing the nation on the fourth anniversary of the July 15 coup attempt, President Erdoğan said: “On the night of July 15, they once again tried to put chains on this freedom-loving nation and, thanks be to Allah, they failed. We defeated with a glorious resistance the traitors seeking to silence our adhan, take down our flag, trample on the national will and ruin our future.”
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan addressed the nation from the Presidential Complex on the occasion of the July 15 Democracy and National Unity Day.
“CITIZENS THAT TOOK PART IN THE RESISTANCE SHALL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN”
Underlining that the citizens who rushed to the streets and squares to join the resistance against putschists on the night of July 15 shall never be forgotten, President Erdoğan wished Allah’s mercy upon those who died a martyr’s death during their glorious struggle and well-being to the ghazis.
“THE VICTORY OUR NATION ACHIEVED ON JULY 15 IS NOT AN ORDINARY SUCCESS”
Noting that the victory achieved on July 15 is not an ordinary success in the face of a coup attempt, President Erdoğan stressed that in order to understand the 15th of July, one must look at the struggle the Turkish people have been waging on these lands for a thousand years.
From the first hours of the coup attempt, the Turkish people, with their exceptional wisdom, saw the facts behind the putsch and immediately took action, the President further stressed, and added: “Each and every individual of our nation has proven that they may become an unbeatable hero for their adhan, flag, freedom and future when need be.”
“ON JULY 15, THEY ONCE AGAIN TRIED TO PUT CHAINS ON THIS FREEDOM-LOVING NATION BUT FAILED”
“On the night of July 15, they once again tried to put chains on this freedom-loving nation and, thanks be to Allah, they failed. We defeated with a glorious resistance the traitors seeking to silence our adhan, take down our flag, trample on the national will and ruin our future,” President Erdoğan said, and continued as follows: “The July 15 showed those seeking to take down our last state and capture our homeland that this can be possible only after the last member of our nation breathes his/her last.”
