More than a million people gathered in Istanbul for a rally called by President Tayyip Erdogan to denounce a failed coup last month.

He said that on the night of the coup, the Turkish people had proved to the world that we are mighty enough to foil any coup plot to topple our stable government against terrorist Organizations.
“Had the coup attempt succeeded, we would have lost our homeland, and offered it to our enemy in a silver platter,” said President Erdogan.
The massive rally event on Sunday in Istanbul was described as the biggest, most crowded, political meeting in Turkish political history.
The Turkish people have marked the climax of three weeks of nightly demonstrations by Erdogan’s supporters, many wrapped in the red Turkish flag gathered at Country’s Yenikapi parade ground square.
