Turkish jets violate airspace after PM’s sortie


Three Turkish military aircraft – two armed fighter jets and a CN-235 – violated Greek air space in the northeastern, central and southeastern Aegean on two occasions on Thursday.

The transgressions came just a few hours after Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras flew in a Greek F-16 fighter jet following a visit to the 110th combat wing of the Hellenic Air Force in Larissa, central Greece.

The flight lasted about an hour and passed over Halkidiki, Mount Athos, Limnos, Aghios Efstratios and Skyros.
