A pair of Turkish F-16 fighter jets entered Athens’ Flight Information Region (FIR) without submitting a flight plan at 11.17 a.m. on Friday and flew over the islets of Anthopofagoi and Makronisi in the eastern Aegean, the Hellenic National Defense General Staff (GEETHA) said.

The Turkish aircraft were intercepted by Greek jets in line with international rules of engagement, GEETHA said.
