Just formed the new Greek government, the Greek - Turkish tensions began in Aegean
New episode with Greek amphibious commando and the Turkish coast guard
Serious episode had yesterday in Pserimos island, which thanks to the composure shown by the Navy and the Steal Greek commando team, did not evolve into "hot incident".
Specifically Turkish Coast Guard vessel approached the area carried on a Greek gunboat and two amphibious commando groups. The exercise was stopped immediately and asked the Turkish vessel had passed within Greek territorial waters to leave immediately.
Instead, the Turkish ship was maneuvering between the Greek and then the commandos aboard two boats approached the MAGNA 960 Turkish vessel with side ... threatening moods.The Turkish vessel left after a few minutes, but in the next few hours there was an increased lookout "for fear of the Jews."
Pserimos H belongs to the Dodecanese and is located north east of Kos and Kalymnos. The surface of the island is 14.8 square kilometers with a maximum altitude of 268 meters (879 feet), while the last census of 2001 its population stands at 130 residents.
