The 2017 Hasani coup d'état attempt was an attempted coup d'état in the night of 16 June 2017 by self-declared General Kaab el-Qasentini. General el-Qasentini aimed to take control of the country from recently inaugurated president Əsgər Rzayev and install himself as President.
At 19:34 WET on 16 June, approximately two hours after the inauguration of President Əsgər Rzayev, self-declared General Kaab el-Qasentini issued a statement appointing himself as President and declaring the "overthrowing of power", that the people of Hasanistan shall be "free folk, free from government tyranny" and that the military would supervise the "beginning of a new Hasanistan".
Three minutes later, at 19:37, President Rzayev released his own statement which stated that the coup was "suicide", that el-Qasentini had no power and that the Bogdanoff brothers would punish him. Rzayev released another statement at 19:51, this time in a audio format, which denounced el-Qasentini as an invader and a terrorist and called citizens of Hasanistan to rise up and oppose him.
At 20:15, Hasan Çakar attempted to establish a direct line of communication between Rzayev and el-Qasentini and begin negotiations to end the coup attempt. While Rzayev accepted and was willing to negotiate a settlement, el-Qasentini ignored Çakar's offer. Çakar then aligned with Rzayev and the two began discussing a plan to defeat el-Qasentini and end the coup attempt before the arrival of the next day. The two agreed to a last resort solution by exiling el-Qasentini and revoking his citizenship, a tactic that was previously used during the previous coup d'état attempt in Hasanistan. The decision was formalized and announced to the Hasanistani public by Çakar at 20:49. This announcement was then confirmed by Onur Aydoğan, who declared that el-Qasentini was defeated.
