Eight Turkish jets violate Greek air space


Eight Turkish fighter jets violated Greek national air space in the northeastern, central and southeastern Aegean on Wednesday, defense officials said.

Six Turkish jets, which were flanked on each side by two aircraft that were not a part of the formation, carried out a total of 19 transgressions, the defense officials said, adding that two of the aircraft were armed and that one dogfight occurred.

In all cases, the Turkish jets were chased off by Greek aircraft.
