Turkish military vessels enter Greek waters

Five Turkish warships taking part in the Beyaz Firtina 2014 naval exercise entered Greek territorial waters in the Aegean Sea on Monday.

In a statement, Greece’s National Defense General Staff (GEETHA) said the Kemal Reis, Meltem, Imbat, Ruzgar and Firtina vessels did not stay within the annual drill’s delineated area and were observed sailing around the Cyclades island complex.

The Turkish vessels were monitored by Hellenic Navy ships and Air Force fighter jets.
