The Turkish navy has not been able to count 14  and 2 helicopters after the military coup attempt last Friday, media reports say.

The vessels were on duty in either the Aegean or the Black Seas before the coup. Suspicions are growing that the commanders of the ships could have been behind the coup plot.

In turn, Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus denies that any naval vessels are unaccounted for.

According to unconfirmed reports, Admiral Veysel Kosele, the commander of the Turkish Navy, has been out of contact since the coup night. Turkish authorities don’t know whether he was an instigator of the attempt to oust President Erdogan or is being held hostage.
