Yeni Şafak: Ankara will appeal to NATO because of Greece’s use of the S-300 against Turkish F-16Ankara intends to appeal to NATO due to the fact that the Greek military has guided the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) on the F-16 aircraft of the Turkish Air Force.
This is reported by the newspaper Yeni Şafak with reference to a high-ranking source in the Turkish Ministry of Defense.
The incident occurred on August 23. It became known that the Greek side used S-300 systems to capture and escort Turkish fighters when they were west of Rhodes at an altitude of about three kilometers. In this regard, the Turkish authorities plan to raise the issue of “hostile actions” against the country at the NATO level.
Previously, the Newsbomb portal.gr, citing sources, informed that the Greek Defense Ministry denied the use of the S-300 against the Turkish F-16.
