The ruling Justice and Development Party's Deputy Leader Mehmet Müezzinoğlu said the government will introduce a bill calling for the execution of rebel soldiers who attempted to overthrow the government late Friday.

A faction of Turkish military who is loyal to Fethullah Gülen's terrorist organization opened fire on large crowds and attacked the Turkish Parliament in an attempt to topple the democratically-elected government.

Müezzinoğlu also called on the representatives of NGOs to gather at the Parliament, expected to convene at 1 pm later on Saturday.
