Turkey Is No Stranger To The Coup D'Etat

Parts of the Turkish military have attempted to overthrow the country's government.

This wouldn't be Turkey's first coup.

The first coup in modern Turkey took place in 1960. It resulted in the execution of Prime Minister Adnan Menderes and two cabinet members.

In 1971, a second coup came after mounting political and economic instability.
