TAGS: Defense

Four Turkish military aircraft entered Greek air space without permission on Monday, according to military officials in Athens.

Two of the jets, identified as F-16s, entered the Athens Flight Information Region (FIR) at 3 p.m. before flying over the tiny islet of Panaghia, east of the eastern Aegean island of Chios, at 8,800 feet.

At roughly the same time, another pair of Turkish F-16s flew over Zourafa, an uninhabited islet near Samothraki, in the northeastern Aegean.
