#AceNewsReport – Mar.24: Turkey was planning on invading a total of 131 islands, islets and small rocks on the Aegean Sea, the Scandinavian Nordic Monitor website reported on Saturday:
Turkish army officials issued plans to invade 131 Greek islands in the Aegean Sea: ‘According to a document the website claims to have obtained, Turkish army officials had issued plans to capture what they claim to be ”disputed territories” in the Aegean Sea’
“Turkey Planned to Invade 131 Greek Islands, Classified Documents Reveal,” by Nick Kampouris, Greek Reporter, March 20, 2021 (thanks to Henry):
The secret document is a PowerPoint presentation with a total of sixteen slides and it showed maps of the disputed -according to the Turkish propaganda- islets.
The presentation is most likely a product of Turkish military academies, and it is still unclear when it was originally produced.
The leaked documents show in detail how Ankara was planning on using air and sea forces to occupy the Greek islands, proving yet again the complete disregard of Ergodan’s administration for global security and cooperation within the NATO alliance.
Greek islands listed As the Nordic Monitor reports, the islands, islets and rock formations that were listed are as follows: three locations on Zurefa (Ladoxer in Greek), 13 on Koyun Adaları (Oinousses), 21 on Hurşit (Fimena), 18 on Nergiscik (Arki), 15 Keçi (Pserimos), 12 on Gelemez (Kalolimnos), 2 on Bulamaç (Farmakonisi), 10 on Sakarcılar (Yali), 11 on Koçbaba (Levita), 2 on Karaada (Strongili) and 24 locations around the island of Crete.
The study was based on lessons drawn from the Kardak (Imia) islet crisis of 1996, which brought Athens and Ankara on the brink of a generalized military confrontation. The latter was avoided due to the mediation of Washington….
