New Year, New Provocations

The New Year started off with continuing provocations by the Turkish Air Force. Within the first week of the year there have already been numerous airspace violations and two incidents of over flights of Greek islands. The Hellenic Air Force is under orders by today’s socialist government to not intercept the Turkish aircraft but only escort them on their sightseeing tour of the Greek islands.
The latest incident took place shortly before the Greek PM is to visit Turkey in what many fear will be a visit that will seal an agreement to share Greek resources in the Aegean Sea with Turkey.
