A formation of six Turkish fighter jets violated Greek national air space over the northeastern and southeastern Aegean on Tuesday, Greek defense officials said.

The Turkish jets, which were flanked by another three electronic-warfare aircraft that were not a part of the formation, carried out a total of eight transgressions, the defense officials said, without determining whether any of the aircraft were armed or whether any dogfights occurred.

In all cases, the Turkish jets were chased off by Greek aircraft, as usually occurs in the case of such incursions.
