Baku, Azerbaijan, July 19


All military equipment, including aircrafts, ships and helicopters, are under the control of the Turkish Armed Forces, Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmush said in an interview with local TV channel.

According to him, the information that the Turkish Armed Forces' equipment remained under the control of the putschists is misinformation.

On July 15 evening, Turkish authorities said a military coup attempt took place in the country.

Meanwhile, a group of servicemen announced about transition of power to them.

However, the rebelling servicemen started to surrender July 16 and Turkish authorities said the coup attempt failed.

Over 200 people have been killed in Turkey as a result of the coup attempt.
