The Turks took aim at six Greek F-16s


The Turkish Ministry of National Defense announced the interception of six F-16 fighters of the Greek Air Force (similar to the Turkish ones) in the "restricted" zone of the Eastern Mediterranean. A video appeared on the Web that demonstrates how the Turks are targeting the planes of a NATO ally.


It should be noted that the Turks established the aforementioned zone in violation of international law, i.e. arbitrarily and without the permission of the world community. The incident itself took place on August 27, 2020, when Greek fighters took to the skies from Crete and headed towards Cyprus during the Eunomia exercise.


The maneuvers took place between 26-28 August 2020 south of Cyprus. They were attended by the Navy and Air Force of four countries: Greece, Cyprus, Italy and France. Ankara considered what was happening as a threat to the country's security.

We remind you that the already complicated relations between Greece and Turkey have recently aggravated even more. On August 12, 2020, the Turkish frigate Kemal Reis, after a collision with the Greek patrol boat Limnos, received serious breach... At that time, the Turkish ship was guarding the research vessel Oruc Reis, which was conducting scientific research in an exceptional economic zone of Greece near the island of Kastelorizo.

During the "butting" of surface ships, a Greek submarine quietly swam under Oruc Reis and cut its wires and cables. After that, the Turks had to stop their activities and head to the port of Antalya.

    The Greeks, it seems to me, have chosen the correct line of conduct in the confrontation with the Turks. Only by decisive actions can Erdogan's arrogant claims to the Greek economic zone be suppressed, any negotiations in this case are useless - Muslims understand only the language of force. They get it on the horns and hold their tail between them for a while. No, at the same time they screech loudly, like - "I swayed your house!", But they don't dare to be impudent.

    In the days of the CMEA, what would the Romanians be able to take, for example, the Ukrainians at gunpoint and brag about it, but this is nonsense, not like freedom now ...

    Do not publish fake news from Turkey ..... As it really happened - read in foreign media, the video was made from eight pieces and six months ago.
