A symbolic ceremony will be held at the Yavuz Çıkarma Beach on Monday morning.

A military parade will also take place on Monday at the Dr. Fazıl Küçük Boulevard.

One of the landing crafts used during the 1974 Turkish Peace Operation which has been converted into a floating museum will also be inaugurated on Monday morning.
