A formation of four Turkish fighter jets violated Greek air space three times in the eastern Aegean on Monday afternoon.

Two F-16s and two F-4s entered the Flight Information Region shortly before 2 p.m. south of Lesvos.

Shortly after 2 p.m., the two F-16s flew over Makronisi with the F-4s flying over Agathonisi, at an altitude of 19,000 feet, a minute later.

There were no reports of any dogfights between the Turkish jets and Greek aircraft which chased them off.
