The Turkish Navy warship started fire with real ammunition near the Greek island around 7:30 am. The fire was shot at an easterly direction, away from Pharmakonisi. The neighboring country navy had issued a Navtex earlier.
Greek gunboat “Nikiforos” rushed to the area and sent out the message that the Turkish warship was violating Greek territorial waters and didn’t have permission to carry out the exercise with real shots.
The Turkish ship sailed away in a northern direction after completing the exercise.
