Spate of Turkish provocations: 24 violations of Greek airspace and a mock dogfight

Featured Spate of Turkish provocations: 24 violations of Greek airspace and a mock dogfight

The day after the visit of the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to the USA to meet with the US President Dnald Trump and right after the very warm words the two exchanged in a very friendly atmosphere, Turkey reacted in a quite predictable way:

Turkey sent four F-16s and two military helicopters which violated the Athens FIR ten times and Greek airspace 24 times.

It is worth mentioning that all four F-16s were armed, hence not in the usual “training missions” they use as an excuse to enter the Greek FIR and airspace.

The Turkish jets were intercepted by Greek jets where on one occasion the interception turned into a mock dogfight.
