2016’s second YAŞ meeting starts at Çankaya Palace

0

Turkey’s Supreme Military Council (YAŞ) meeting, where promotions, retirements and dismissals in the Turkish Armed Forces are decided, has begun for the second time this year, a first in the council’s history.

The YAŞ meeting is being held at the Çankaya Palace, chaired by Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım.

YAŞ meetings generally take place once a year in August, but this year it was convened earlier, on July 28, in the aftermath of a coup attempt on July 15, which claimed the lives of at least 240 people and wounded a thousand others.
