Turkish Warships Pass Greek Islands

90E6719114205B2460EDEFA4D2FE5565The Turkish Navy was again provocative as, for the second time this week, two Turkish warships passed by eight Greek islands.
The missile ship ZIPKIN and the frigate YILDIRIM entered and violated the national territorial waters between Mykonos, Naxos, Syros, Kea, Gyaros, Amorgos, Euboea and Andros.
In the last seven days, this is the second time that the Turkish warships have violated the Greek territorial waters. The warships were participating in a naval exercise called Thalassolikos (Sea Dog}, that is taking  place near Rhodes, when authorities said they veered off course.
The Turkish warships instead of returning to their positions at the Dardanelles and move on to a straight course,  chose to sail for about 12 hours between eight Greek islands violating the Greek territorial waters.
According to the announcement by the Hellenic National Defense General Staff, the Turkish warships ZIPKIN and YILDIRIM violated the territorial waters coming from the south-eastern Aegean at 09:40 and 13:15 respectively  the east of Amorgos. Then they moved between Mykonos and Naxos, on to the south of Syros, with an north-western course between Kea and Gyaros and left the national territorial waters at 21:20 between South Euboea and South Andros.
