Turkish bombers have violated the air space of Greece near the Aegean Islands a couple of times in the course of hours, reports the Greek Kathimerini newspaper. The Turkish F-16s flew over Oinus and Panagia islands.
Turkey’s violations in the air space of Greece are typical, and the Greek government has addressed international bodies with this issue several times. Turkey is in a dispute over the air space surrounding the Aegean Islands and refutes any violation.
In November 2019, Turkey signed an agreement with the Libyan government according to which Turkey and Libya are considered marine neighbors. Greece declares that the deal overlooks a large portion of territorial waters surrounding its islands and that the goal is to block the natural gas pipeline that Greece is planning to build with Cyprus and Israel.
