The military of Greece reported the appearance of 16 Turkish F-16 fighters in Libya. The planes hit the Greek radars on April 18th. In addition, in the Mediterranean sky, three Turkish Air Force KC-135R refueling aircraft were seen, necessary for refueling fighters operating over long distances.
The Greek military recorded a total of more than a dozen fighters, and they all crossed the air border of Libya. In addition, Turkish aircraft flew into Greek territory, and it almost came to direct armed clashes.

Apparently, the aircraft participated in the development of offensive operations in Libya, where official Ankara has long supported the so-called Government of National Accord (PNS). According to the official speaker of the LNA, Ahmad Mismari, Turkish forces are preparing for a large-scale attack on the LNA position. So, attacks on the objects of the Libyan national army on the ground, as well as on troops near the confrontation line, were imitated.
Turkey’s aggressive actions indicate that the Turkish authorities do not seek to resolve the situation in Libya, but, on the contrary, undermine it, pursuing their own militarypolitical interests in this country.
