The recent coup attempt in Turkey remains shrouded in mystery. The bulk of the information released to the Turkish public stems from the leaked testimonies of officers involved in the coup and government statements, both of which suggest that followers of Fethullah Gülen, a Pennsylvania-based Turkish imam living in self-exile, planned and executed the coup attempt. The Turkish military has sought to tamp down concerns that the army has fractured, releasing a statement that only 1.5 percent of the army participated in the coup.This metric belies the seriousness of the attempt, as well as the depth of support it appeared to have within two key components of the Turkish Armed Forces: the Air Force and the Second Army, Turkey’s largest force, which is responsible for the defense of Anatolia. During the coup attempt, 35 planes (including 24 fighter jets) and 37 helicopters, took part in the uprising. The putschists also had considerable support from mid-ranking officers in Turkey’s First Army, which is responsible for the borders with Bulgaria and Greece.
