The Liberation of İzmir from Enemy Occupation

On 9 September, on the anniversary of the liberation of İzmir from enemy occupation, we commemorate all the heroes of our struggle for independence, especially Gazi Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK, and our beloved martyrs with mercy and gratitude.

“While the swords of our cavalrymen were shaped like paintings on the sea at the İzmir dock, our infantrymen raised the Turkish flag to the sky at Kadifekale. The value of the last example of an operation given by the armies of the Grand National Assembly of Türkiye to the history of warfare will be realized after this operation has been analyzed in all its phases, and perhaps not today, but tomorrow.” Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK
