Secularism in Turkey
A battle with only bayonets. Maybe 30 steps far away from the enemy. No rifles, no artillery, no proper arms. Only scarce sources and morale force and, of course, a great commander to make all this possible, Mustafa Kemal. These are what the Turkish army had when they fought against the victorious Allies in Çanakkale.
Rahşan Ecevit, wife and closest confidant of late Turkish Prime Minister Bülent Ecevit, was laid to rest in the capital province of Ankara on Jan. 19.
Ecevit died at the Gülhane Training and Research Hospital, where she had been receiving treatment since Dec. 26, on Jan. 17 at the age of 97.
She died in the intensive care unit due to multiple organ failure at around 9.10 p.m.
