Greece is increasing tensions with Turkey
It has been announced that Greece has shipped armored vehicles to the Aegean Islands with Non-Military Status (GASA) in violation of international law.
Security sources, the Turkish Armed Forces UAVs performing mission flights in the Aegean, detected a movement and determined that two Greek landing craft were on the way to Lesbos and Samos.
It was reported that these ships delivered 23 tactical wheeled armored vehicles with GASA status to Lesbos and 18 tactical wheeled armored vehicles to Samos. It was noteworthy that armored vehicles were among the vehicles sent by the USA to Alexandroupoli.
The sources, stating that they are trying to place the weapons donated by the USA in GASAs, evaluated these aggressive actions of NATO ally Greece, which is against international law and the spirit of alliance, as “never acceptable” against calls for dialogue.
Security sources described these events on 18 September and 21 September as the clearest indication that Greece continues to arm the islands close to Turkey and violate GASA status.
