15 July Martyrs from Academia
Turkey was subjected to a treacherous coup attempt on the night of July 15, 2016, and the patriotic people of our nation defended democracy by protecting their country with the active elements of the state. Our nation suffered severe losses. 249 people became martyrs and 2196 veterans and countless citizens parried the coup attempt.
The Turkish academia also took part as an important part of our nation in defending Turkey and some members of the academia became martyrs.
July 15, 2016 will take its place as a day of pain and victory in our collective memories.
We keep all martyrs and those from the academia who lost their lives in July 15 in our thoughts and prayers.
