Turkey is commemorating the July 15 failed coup attempt one year after the deadly incident as the unique fight against coup plotters to protect Turkish democracy is being remembered on every platform, including social media.

A widely shared video recreating the moments of martyrs being killed by the coup soldiers was trending in Turkey on Friday. It is one of the many works to keep the memory of the martyrs alive.

The video features the leading figures killed during the coup attempt, including the Justice and Development (AK) Party's campaign manager, Erol Olcak and his 16-year-old son Abdullah Tayyip Olcak, who were killed when the coup soldiers opened fire on protesters at the Bosporus bridge.

The confrontation between the coup soldiers and Sergeant Ömer Halisdemir, who killed coup leader Brig. Gen. Semih Terzi and died fighting against coup plotters in the Special Forces Command in Ankara, was also shown in the video.
