Ankara (Turkey) - In Turkey two senior generals have resigned, as the prime minister prepared to meet military commanders for a major overhaul the armed forces in the wake of a failed coup. Their resignations come one day after the mass dismissal of military personnel.

The prime minister Binali Yildirim defended the purge, saying, “it is certain that we’ll rule out all terrorist groups which threaten our government, nation and our country’s indivisible integrity.”

On the agenda at the Supreme Military Council meeting: the failed military coup, the latest dismissals and the promotion of officers to fill the gaps in the top ranks.

In a sign of the shift power structures, for the first time the meeting was held in Ankara instead of at the military headquarters, and lasted just one day rather than three. (Euronews)
