Daily Global Issues Brief - May 5, 2016 (headlines)

Good morning, all. Here are my top 5 news on global issues from #Syria #Turkey #Pakistan #Israel #Gaza and Brazil.

  • SYRIA: Is it misunderstanding or purposeful ambiguity of the new US-Russia brokered cease-fire? Did truce begin Wednesday 12:01am (US claim) or Thursday at 1:00am (Syrian claim)? Are groups affiliated with Al Nusra Front for strategic military purposes not covered by the truce? As questions pile up, more people die.

  • With PM Davutoglu resigning, President Erdogan is growing as uncontested power house – less checks & balances, more crackdowns on rights groups, journalists, protesters… That is the player in Syrian conflict & refugee crisis? ...very concerning.
