History of Democracy and National Unity Day
On July 15th 2016, Two hundred and fifty-nine people, mostly civilians, were killed and over 2,500 were wounded after a rogue military faction tried to overthrow President Erdogan.
The attempt to topple President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's government was blamed by Ankara on US-based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen, a former ally turned foe of Erdogan. Gulen denies the claims.
The attempt was thwarted by military troops loyal to the government.
In Istanbul, the bridge across the Bosphorus in Istanbul which was the scene of bloody fighting between Erdogan’s supporters and renegade soldiers is now renamed the July 15 Martyrs' Bridge and the square in Ankara where thousands gathered nightly for a month after the coup attempt has been renamed July 15 Kizilay National Will Square.
In 2017, President Erdogan first declared July 15th as a public holiday to commemorate the failed coup.

THE DEMOCRACY AND NATIONAL UNITY DAY OF TURKEY - July 15, 2022 - National Today
History of The Democracy and National Unity Day of Turkey
An attempted military coup occurred in Turkey on July 15, 2016, at about 10:00 P.M. First, military jets were witnessed flying over Ankara, internet users were denied access to social media, and troops were seen entering the Justice and Development Party’s offices in Istanbul and ordering people to leave. A faction within the Turkish Armed Forces, known as the Peace at Home Council, carried out the assassination attempt. The government said the coup leaders were linked to Fethullah Gülen, a Turkish businessman and scholar who lives in Pennsylvania, and the Gülen movement now referred to as FETÖ since the incident.
Helicopters bombed the police special forces headquarters and police air force headquarters in Gölbaşı, just outside of Ankara, from around 11:00 P.M. until midnight. According to Reuters, there were soldiers inside the buildings of the state broadcaster, the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (T.R.T.), in Ankara at 00:02 A.M. They forced anchor Tijen Karaş to deliver a statement claiming that “the democratic and secular rule of law has been eroded by the current government.” Erdoğan did a FaceTime interview with C.N.N. Türk at 01:00 A.M., in which he called upon his supporters to take to the streets in defiance of the military-imposed curfew.
Soon after, a crowd of civilians and police stormed the T.R.T. broadcasting offices, purportedly “neutralizing” four soldiers inside, and then the channel went back on air. The coup fell apart in the early hours of July 16 when masses disobeyed pro-coup military instructions and gathered in Istanbul and Ankara’s major squares to oppose it. Although many soldiers surrendered to the police, others fled by helicopter. On July 20, 2016, the Turkish government declared a state of emergency and used its newfound powers to pursue any putative follower of Gülen and his movement. To commemorate the failed coup attempt, July 15 was declared a public holiday for the first time in 2017.
