Tension Brewing in the Aegean


DefenceNet reports that many Turkish Naval Units have been concentrated in the Aegean in order to participate in live fire exercises. Six Turkish frigates are taking part in the formation. Four or Five Turkish subs have also been deployed to the area.

Also today 16 Turkish Air Force fighters entered the Athens FIR and on two occasions breached Greek national airspace. Three dogfights occurred with Greek Air Force interceptors.

This morning another incident took place with a warning issued to a Finnish Frontex aircraft by a Turkish ground station. For more information on Frontex see here, here and here.
