Transcript of Turkey Coup Plotters WhatsApp Group
By @trbrtc and @hasavrat
This is the full transcript of the WhatsApp group conversation of a part of plotters the
coup d’état attempt in Turkey. The name of the WhatsApp group, “Yurtta sulh”, refers to
Ataturk’s famous slogan “Yurtta sulh, cihanda sulh”, meaning “Peace at home, peace in
the world”, and is the slogan of the Turkish Land Forces.
Here’s a link to the original video file that shows a part of the conversation and is
transcribed here under “Transcript 1 (video)”. The second part of the conversation was
published in Turkish by AJ Türk’s Selahattin Günday, and is translated here under
“Transcript 2 (AJ Türk)”. Unfortunately, the messages of the AJ Türk images do not have a
timestamp. The transcript was translated by “Has Avrat”.
This transcript is part of a Bellingcat open source analysis of the group conversation,
which includes information of the persons and military units involved, as well as the
transcript cross-referenced with events in Istanbul. The analysis can be read here.
Translator’s note: The nature of the text, hastily written WhatsApp messages littered with spelling
errors and military abbreviations, makes it very challenging to translate. To wit, I have done my
utmost to translate the messages from the Turkish in the most literal sense possible to prevent
interpretation of the meaning and intent of the text from being altered in English. I do apologise in
advance for any errors.
