The Ministry of Defense also provided statistics on violations by Greece.
So, since the beginning of the year, Greece has committed 206 violations of airspace, 27 violations of territorial waters, 95 attacks on aircraft, 790 violations by ships on islands with a non-military status.

For the first time PKK terrorists declared themselves in 1984. In subsequent years, RKK terrorists began to commit bloody acts of terrorism in order to destabilize the situation and split Turkey.
The United States and the European Union have listed PKK as terrorist organizations. The PKK terrorist organization is carrying out armed attacks on government structures and Turkish citizens.
Despite Ankara’s attempts to find ways to resolve the situation, the PKK terrorist organization has resumed armed attacks since July 2015.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that from 1984, when PKK militants first committed a bloody crime in Turkey, and until March 2020, 7,500 members of the Turkish security forces and 6,800 civilians have died at the hands of this bloody organization.
In recent years, PKK has sought to shift responsibility for the bloody crimes in the region onto its offshoots.
In Syria, PKK terrorists hide behind the names PYD and YPG, and in the past two years have called themselves the “Syrian Democratic Forces.” In Iran, the PKK acts as the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK).
