Former Emir of Qatar, Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, strongly condemned the failed military coup in Turkey, stressing his country’s solidarity with the legitimate Turkish government.

Al Thani commended the ‘positive and constructive’  role undertaken by Erdogan in the region, particularly his unlimited support for the armed Syrian opposition.

He also accused the United States and another western country of orchestrating the coup, harshly criticizing Saudi FM Adel al-Jubeir for cooperating with these countries .

According to the former Emir, al-Jubeir remained silent even though he beforehand knew what was being plotted against the Turkish state.

At height of Turkish coup bid, rebel jets had Erdogan’s plane in their sights

It looks more and more as a totally staged thing :
If you are pilots in a coup, there is no turning back : either you shoot down the prez or you’re doomed!
And, BTW, you’re prez, in such a case, you don’t fly in a Gulfstream : you jump in a dual-places armed jet fighter.
Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh seems very happy Erdogan wasn’t ousted : he made a cake to celebrate his friend’s victory…
