PanARMENIAN.Net - Seven planes have violated the Greek airspace on
Thursday, January 31 evening, foreign media said citing the Athens
News Agency.

The country's air forces responded by sending its aircraft to
intercept the Turkish ones.

Reports say that four Turkish planes violated airspace to the north of
Chios, and the other three were spotted to the east of Rhodes.

The Turkish air force is said to have been taking part in naval exercises.

Greece regularly blames Turkey for violating its airspace. The two
countries have a territorial dispute over the Aegean Sea.
