Greek Air Defense shot down a Turkish military drone
ATHENS, (BM) – Greece destroys a Turkish drone that breaks its air border. Despite warnings from the Greek military about the inadmissibility of breaking the country’s borders by Turkish planes and drones, Ankara sent a reconnaissance drone to the border of that country, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
The drone violated the Greek airspace several times, but at the last border crossing the drone was destroyed by the Greek military.
According to information provided by operational sources and quoted by Gli Occhi Della Guerra, the incident took place the night before. It is also reported that the unmanned aerial vehicle was shot down with a light weapon.
The Greek military sent no further notice to Turkey and took down the aircraft at the first reported violation.
“There is still no information as to what type of unmanned aerial vehicle was dropped by the Greek army, but it is apparently a relatively small reconnaissance UAV, which is alleged to be monitoring the situation at the Greek-Turkish border and monitoring the actions of the Greek army. Turkey has not yet commented on the loss of its drone at the border with Greece, but Athens’ actions clearly indicate a willingness to counter any provocation by Turkey,” informed Gli Occhi Della Guerra.
