Festive parades kicked off in Turkey in honor of the victory in the Battle of Canakkale, TRT Haber news channel reported Apr. 24.

The Battle of Canakkale, which took place during the World War I, killed over 500,000 people. The Turks lost 57,000 people in the battle, which also involved the Azerbaijani soldiers.

In Turkey, the Battle of Canakkale is also called the “gentlemen’s war.” Turkey’s officials have repeatedly said it was one of the bloodiest battles in the country’s history, however, the warring sides never forgot about humaneness even under the war conditions.
