• Really simple break down of what happened
  • Great external links and videos for more specifics
  • President Erdogan was on holiday and that’s part of the reason the coup was that day
  • The coup failed because the group couldn’t gain wider support or get backup for this movement, during coup there were counter coupers (no majority support= failed coup)
  • Speculation that spillover from Syrian conflict could’ve been a catalyst
  • Confirms the government doesn’t know who is the leader and they are arresting whoever was a supporter
  • Tighter regulations/increased power taken by government as a result of coup
  • Since turkey is involved heavily in NATO international community walking on eggshells to keep situation calmish
