Earlier, the mayor of Ankara, İbrahim Melih Gokcek said that one of the pilots who shot down Su-24, also participated in the coup in Turkey.

According to him, this man is a member of the organization located in US, headed by the preacher Fethullah Gulen, who is currently on Turkey's most-wanted-terrorist list and is accused of leading what the current Turkish officials call the Gulenist Terror Organisation.

As it was reported earlier, a Russian Su-24 was shot down by Turkish armed forces in November 2015 after violating Turkish airspace.
