Some of the funerals were held at the hometowns' of those soldiers. Turkish dailies covered that investigation into the accident had begun.

Daily VATAN headlined "Passing grade becomes 165" and said that OSYM denied the claims over the miscalculation and because of the lower success of this year's candidates, YOK decided to discuss lowering the passing grade of Undergraduate Placement Examination (LYS).
Lastly, Turkish dailies focused on their Tuesday edition the Kurdish control over north of Syria.
