Tell Turkey: Stop invading Greek airspace
After Turkey shot down a Russian jet in November 2015, many commentators pointed out Turkey’s hypocritical position on respecting airspace; after all, Turkish airspace incursions over Greece are a frequent event. In fact, according to the latest data of the Hellenic National Defense General Staff, since 2011, more than 7000 aircrafts have been increasingly violating Greek sovereignty in the Aegean. Specifically: 3545 Infringements of Air Traffic Regulations, 6421 Violations of National Air Space and 64 Overflights of National Territory. As HALC’s Senior Fellow Nikos Katsimpras has explained, «these numbers include 878 armed formations, which brings the significance of threat to a whole another level.»
