Turkish jets back in Greek air space

Five Turkish military aircraft violated Greek air space in the northeastern, central and southeastern Aegean eight times on Wednesday, leading to one mock dogfight with Greek jets that were dispatched to the area.

The Turkish aircraft – four F-16s and one CN-235 – also violated the Athens Flight Information Region four times.

Two of the F-16s were armed, according to Greek defense sources who said all the Turkish aircraft were chased off by Greek aircraft in line with international rules of engagement.
