More Airspace Violations

A total of 16 Turkish Air Force fighter aircraft violated Greek airspace today. Of these 16 aircraft 8 were armed. The aircraft entered the Athens FIR in two formations and breached Greek airspace 11 times. All Turkish aircraft were intercepted by the Greek Air Force.

On a related note, Turkish EU Chief negotiator Egemen Bagis, criticised Germany and France for selling military equipment to Greece at a time when Greece is facing such dire economic problems. Turkish politicians were quick to pick up on Greek politicians saying there should be mutual arms purchase reductions by Greece and Turkey.
