Video has surfaced of a purported Turkish thermal radar unit overlooking the Greek islets of Imia.
The Ihlas News Agency has released video showing a Mugla-province-registered vehicle on the Turkish coast within viewing distance of the islets.
On top is mounted a Raymarine scanning system. However, it is not clear if the system is part of a military set up or of military grade. Raymarine itself says it sells navigational aids to the “recreational boating and light commercial marine markets”.
There has been a consistent build up of Turkish observation posts in the Imia area, following on from increased tension with Greece in the area.
