F-16's have now made multiple passes over the city of Ankara, as troops now block certain streets in the city. Rumors rage of a developing coup/security situation. I know none of this is confirmed, but this defiantly deserves to be seen here on Sit.Rep.

HUGE find: https://twitter.com/WashingtonPoint/sta ... 1673463808

It also seem's that bridges in Istanbul have been closed by troops. This is NOT good.

This is the first time troops and the military vehicles are seen in urban areas in Turkey since 1997.

Unconfirmed reports of high-profile terror threat, but I don't think this is from terrorism.

The photos are convincing, but I'd like to find a source besides twitter.

We do know a bridge is closed: https://twitter.com/eefsun/status/754026806768988160

Nor do I. This is defiantly a coup. Turkish hardliners have had this in the works for decades. I hope for the best, but fear for the worst. Has the Arab Spring's finally arrived in Turkey?

Why do they need f-16s for a coup?

They're on high alert, but what evidence indicates a coup?
