The situation between Greece and Turkey seems to be becoming more tense every day! At midnight today, a Coast Guard boat on the island of Rhodes in Greece opened fire on a yacht, leaving 2 Turkish citizens and a Syrian injured.
According to foreign media, the attack took place in Greek waters, 7.2 miles from Turkey’s Mugla province. The injured were immediately taken to Marmaris State Hospital by the Turkish rescue team and their health condition is still unknown. According to the Greek Navy, “the suspicious yacht was asked to stop for control, but its pilot did not respect it by increasing the speed while performing dangerous maneuvers”.
“After the continuous use of lighting signals by the Coast Guard crew, in order for the suspicious yacht to stop for control, its pilot did not respect it, but increased the speed, while performing dangerous maneuvers. The shooting took place in safe areas, in accordance with the rules of engagement, so that the yacht would stop for control. “After being pursued, the yacht moved to the Turkish shores and entered Turkish territorial waters accompanied by two Turkish guards,” the Hellenic Navy said in a statement.
In the Eastern Mediterranean for several days “wind of war is blowing”, after the official Ankara decision to start gas and oil exploration very close to the Greek border.
