“KNOW BETTER WITH MESOP” : Iran’s Leader Accuses US of Assisting Coup in Turkey
TEHRAN (FNA)- 2 August 2016 – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei accused the US of helping the coup plotters in Turkey, describing it as a “big scandal” for Washington, if proved.
“In the recent events in Turkey, there is a strong accusation that the coup was staged by the Americans’ measures and preparations and if this issue is proved, it will be a big scandal for the US,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=76601

“KNOW BETTER WITH MESOP” – Failed Coup Cost Turkey $100 Million, According to Government Estimates / AN OVERVIEW
The Turkish government has estimated that the failed July 15 coup attempt has cost the country’s economy $100 million, and that the figure could still rise, Turkish Customs and Commerce Minister Bulent Tufenkci told Hurriyet. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan proposed over the weekend new constitutional reforms that would place the intelligence service and military chief-of-staff directly under presidential control. The proposal is the latest effort by Erdogan to consolidate the power of the presidency. The Turkish government has now reportedly filed a second extradition request for Fethullah Gulen, the controversial cleric who the government has accused of orchestrating the coup. A delegation of opposition politicians is visiting Washington, DC, this week, where they have spoken in favor of the extradition and said they stand behind the government and against the attempted coup.

MESOP : THE EVALUATION OF THE “NEW” JABHAT AL NUSRA – Q&A with the “New” Jabhat al-Nusra
Last week the jihadists of Jabhat al-Nusra formally detached themselves from Al Qa’eda, renaming themselves as Jabhat Fatah al-Sham to pursue “unity” in Syria’s “jihad” against the Assad regime. Many analysts, especially those based in the US, limited themselves to an evaluation of Nusra and Al-Qa’eda. Our own analysis, to be developed further this week, is that the move should be a pragmatic step in the local context of the Nusra/JFS membership, most of whom are Syria and may not share the ideology-first approach of the leadership; the battlefield situation versus not only the Assad regime and its allies; and the search for local political, legal, and social authority.

MESOP : ALEPPO UPDATE 1 HOUR AGO – BY GLENN FIELD
The US and Russian dispute over relief proposal for besieged Aleppo
2 August 2016 – RUDAW – As the Syrian Civil War rages on, the government opposition stronghold in the city of Aleppo has become surrounded by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces which are cutting off rebel supply routes and creating a humanitarian crisis which is unprecedented in this war to date. This has resulted in a rise in tensions among international supporters of both, regime and opposition forces, particularly the United States and Russia.
The city’s encirclement leads to a very complex logistical question concerning the administration of relief aid to those trapped inside the besieged city, and also whether or not the proposal on how to provide this relief is ethical. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=76622
