In fact, the Turks claim that the harassment took place in the context of a NATO exercise
Turkey makes black and white once again.
After yesterday’s barrage of harassment, today the Turkish Ministry of Defense claimed that Greek fighters harassed Turkish fighters, which were participating in a NATO exercise carried out yesterday with the participation of an American radar.
According to the report by Stavros Ioannidis, the exercise referred to by the Turkish Ministry of Defense is not NATO, but a national exercise of Turkey to which a NATO flying radar was invited.
