Fighter jets seized by the pro-coup soldiers bombed Grand National Assembly of Turkey, which has never been attacked before, even in the War of Independence. During the bombardment, it was captured by the cameras that Minister of Justice Bekir Bozdag approached to the Parliamentary Speaker and said, "The Parliament should not be closed, what we should do is to die here". In the bombardment, lobby windows were broken and Prime Minister Yildirim's office in the Parliament was damaged. In the attack, several police officers and Parliament personnel were injured. Parliamentary Speaker of GNAT Ismail Kahraman and the MPs in the General Assembly took cover in the Parliament's shelter.
