Thing is clear : militaries ordered to arrest all the hospitalized daeshbags…
They clearly have enough of erdoshit.
If they can keep momentum, there’ll be serious cleansing, no more mercenaries in/out Syria, Syria will be a dead trap for terrorists.

Well, he’ll soon open “Gollum kebab” in Trier, Germany and I’ll go buy one from him.
Although he could always seek asylum in … Gaza?

“Protesters have heard Erdogan’s call to take to the streets, though, and some are chanting “shoulder to shoulder against the coup”. Others have squared off with military forces who’ve closed bridges and streets. In one video, a policeman and military officer argue in a crowd in the street; in another, cars jammed in traffic honked horns in unison as people mill among them. In a third, a crowd sings and lifts up a huge Turkish flag.”-the Guardian, 11min ago

Seems a strange situation : in some areas, militaries are confronted, in others, they are sheered.

“Erdogan says live that this coup attempt is a gift from God… Because it gives him opportunity to cleanse the Army.” => False flag?
