ATHENS – Greece has put its military on standby after Turkey sent more fighter jets into Greek air space, which it does on a regular basis.

On Dec. 22, a formation of six Turkish jets violated Greek air space east of Crete and were chased off by Greek aircraft. The two sides occasionally engage in mock dogfights when the Turkish fighters fly over Greek territory.

On Dec. 21, six Turkish jets also entered Greek air space over the northern and central Aegean, according to defense officials, who said the Turkish planes left after Greek jets approached them. The interceptions occurred west of Lesvos and off Antipsara, near Chios.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has gotten bolder in recent months, sending a Turkish energy research vessel and warship off Cyprus to look for oil and gas and sending Turkish warcraft off Greece and Cyprus.
