2016’s second YAŞ meeting starts at Çankaya Palace

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.
