- Two Turkish star generals on Thursday resigned from the army. This was reported by CNN-Turk television channel, a day after 1700 soldiers were dishonorably discharged for their role in the failed coup earlier this month.
The two generals are Kamil Basoglu and Ihsan Uyar, both senior officers in the land forces. It was not immediately clear why they resigned. Wednesday 149 generals and admirals were dismissed. That's about 40 percent of all Turkish generals and admirals, evidenced by military data.
