Turkish Frigate in Greek Territorial Waters - Greek navy keeping eye on Turkey


 During the night of Tuesday November 12, the Turkish frigate “Oruc Reis” sailed through Euboea and Skyros. In the middle of the night, the Turkish Generals from Ankara sent a Turkish frigate in order to test the time that the Greek military needs to react. 

The Turkish frigate sailed from the Hellespont and reached Greek territorial waters passing through Euboea and Skyros. The Turkish frigate stayed in Greek waters for 32 minutes, from 22:32 to 23:04 on Tuesday night.

The provocative voyage of the Turkish frigate comes two days after the unprecedented statement of the Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan–that there is no country called Cyprus.

According to the official announcement of the Hellenic National Defense of General Staff, the Turkish frigate “which came from the Hellespont, moving in a southwesterly course, entered Greek territorial waters between South Euboea and South Skyroson  at 22:32 on November 12. Then, it moved toward a southeastern course leaving Greek Territorial Waters on South Skyros at 23:04, continuing its sail to the southeastern Aegean.

The officers of the Pentagon stated that “ships and machines from the Hellenic Navy watched and still watch this frigate through its voyage.”
