Turkey Continuing Provocations in the Aegean

Today saw renewed over flights of Farmakonisi Island by Turkish Air Force fighter aircraft. The incident happened at 10:18 this morning and involved 8 F-16s. The aircraft were intercepted by the Greek side.

The latest provocation is likely a response to the current military exercises taking place in Andravida air force base in Greece between Greek and Israeli Combat Search And Rescue assets. This particular exercise is seen by many as a precursor to a possible Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
