Turkish dailies mostly covered in their Friday editions the start of the holy month of Ramadan, the ongoing violence in Syria, developments at the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP). The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Daily YENI SAFAK said, "Syrian government who is planning to repulse the Free Syrian Army warned the citizens of Damascus, saying 'Leave the city in 48 hours of time'."
Several Turkish dailies covered the victory of CHP leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu after the party's regular congress. Holding an exclusive interview with the CHP leader, daily VATAN headlined "I will expel who ever harms the party" and quoted Kilicdaroglu saying, "Who ever works against the party during elections, I will not forgive and keep them in the party."
The dailies also covered their Friday edition with Ramadan news. Muslims welcomed Ramadan in joy. Most of the Turkish dailies published that they will be having series of articles during the month of Ramadan.
