    There's no doubt about that in my book, as that has been the case ever since Homer, and most countries probably think so as well, but as long as the Turkey has an issue with it, the tensions will continue.

    I agree.

    Such a crash was just waiting to happen.

    The Aegean islands belong to Greece.

    Anytime the Turks violate Greek airspace, the Hellenic Air Force (HAF) WILL intercept.

    Turkish & Greek Jets Collide over Agean Sea

    ATHENS - A Greek and a Turkish fighter jet collided in midair above the southern Aegean island of Karpathos on Tuesday, a Greek defense ministry official said.

    “The two jets collided above Karpathos. We don’t know what has happened to the pilots yet,” he told Reuters.

    It was not clear what type of planes had crashed.

    The Turkish defense ministry was not immediately available for comment.

    Archrivals Greece and Turkey regularly criticize each other for causing mock dogfights between warplanes over the Aegean sea.

    Greece’s defense ministry says it daily scrambles several fighter jets to intercept Turkish jets that it claims have invaded its airspace.
