There are reports that a military coup is currently underway in Turkey.
The Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that Turkish soldiers have blocked both bridges on the Bosphorus in Istanbul while gunfire has been heard and jets and helicopters are reportedly flying low in the country’s capital Ankara.
“Turkish Armed Forces have completely taken over the administration of the country to reinstate constitutional order, human rights and freedoms, the rule of law and general security that was damaged. All international agreements are still valid. We hope that all of our good relationships with all countries will continue.”
