Well, seems like the military have control now...

The Prime Minister of Turkey said ( I heard it on the Dutch news ) that they ( goverment )have still control in Turkey.

But what you hear now out of Turkey from or the army or the goverment can all be lies... You never know in an situation like this.

Can I ask to which place you go?

This is not happening in whole Turkey right now. But still I know what you mean.

My younger brother is going in two weeks...

Of course you need to watch out with this situation.

Do you have in your own country a alert from your goverment?

Like if they will say '' Dont go, its to unsafe ''. ( Called in Holland a negative travel advice. )

Maybe then you can get your money back?

A good and smart choice to do! And also think with your own head, not only listen to others I would say..

Excellent source of updates here: https://www.reddit.com/live/x9gf3donjlkq

The coup appears to be led by the chiefs of the turkish airforce and land forces.

Oh dear, shit is real then.

I heard on the Dutch news that it was only a small group of military...

I hope for the best...

I could see this sparking a civil war tbh, as it's all religion based.

Can't really take over a country with a few forces.

Don't underestimate a few forces. Because that small force can be bigger then you think.

And maybe tomorrow the whole army supports the coup.

Also you don't know how '' big '' that few force is right now.

I thought also the President is outside the country what makes it more worse.

And if this coupe wants what the people of the country also wants, then its done.

For everybody if you have any intrest in this supject, the Wiki List of all the coups around the world.

Some say they are just a faction in the military, others say it's the entire military

Can't really take over a country with a few forces.

Especially a country as large as Turkey. Going to need more than a few military regiments to have full control of the entire nation.

It's not religion based, the army claimed that human rights and freedoms, along with constitutional order have all been damaged, that is what motivated the coup

I never underestimate a few forces. I was in the Marine Corp for 8 years and got my ass kicked by the towlheads almost every day. But when it comes to seizing a few bridges you dont gain much but have most of your few forces hold a bridge or two. And when it comes to having a President outside his country when something like this happens is sometimes a good thing as this coupe was gunning for him to capture him and order his loyal forces to stand down.
