Greek military was set on alert earlier today after a new barrage of the country’s air space (Athens FIR) violations by Turkish jets that flew over the Aegean Sea on Monday.
According to information emerging from the Greek Ministry of National Defense, a formation of six Turkish fighter jets entered the Athens FIR, flying over the northern and central Aegean Sea, but were apparently chased away by Greek jets, the crew of which responded immediately.
As the same sources stated, the incident occurred west of Lesvos island, in the eastern Aegean Sea, off Antipsara and near Chios.
