Turkish overflights in Aegean continue

TAGS: Defense

Turkish overflights in the Aegean continued on Friday, when a fighter jet encroached on Greek air space 19 times, according to military officials in Athens.

All the violations were carried out by a single CN-235 aircraft, which flew over the islands of Oinousses and Panagia.

Greece has complained that Turkish overflights have increased in frequency since both countries started participating in NATO patrols in the Aegean aimed at tackling smugglers.
