In the latest of what many calls scapegoating for its own negligence, the government now accuses the Gülen movement of having caused 9 accidents that involved F-16 and 4 aircrafts in the past two years.

Removals of talented pilots from within military and FETÖ’s ensuing infiltration has increased the occurrence of crashes, said a recent report that Ankara Public Prosecutor’s Office attached to its investigation into the movement.

According to Habertürk daily, lack of experience of the movement-affiliated trainers and pilots are allegedly among the reasons for the increasing number of crashes.
