"Turkish troops invade Greece and occupy a small patch of land on contested border

  • 21 May 2020, 23:50

TURKISH troops yesterday invaded Greece and occupied a small patch of land on their contested border.

Around 35 soldiers marched on to a floodplain site on the east bank of the River Evros at Melissokomeio, said Greek sources.

Special forces and infantry set up a camp with a small Turkish flag flying from a tree and rejected Greek demands to withdraw.

It comes weeks after thousands of Syrian refugees failed to break through into Greece.

Local reports say the invasion is in response to a Greek army survey of the 1.6-hectare site as part of plans to expand the border fence which kept the refugees out.

Turkey’s provocations towards Greece have mounted under hardline President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkey should have been ousted from Nato many years ago. Do we need a video of Erdogen and Putin being intiment?

We have relied and no doubt paid for their "loyalty" for too long. Cut them loose.

It'll be interesting to see how Greece responses. My guess is it won't mimic Leonidas.

The Turks are good people. I like Turkish tobacco. The Greeks, not so much all they ever gave us was grease. Eeuw!

1.6 Hectars = 3.95 Acres.

Great..... Let the killing begin. Hope there's enough space to burry the bodies.

My understanding is the Greeks don't want the Syrian refugees in their country. The Turks are letting them in. time for the Greeks to get mean and nasty, keep your country the way you want it.

It is not the first time the Turks have made a land grab. The Greeks will be mad as hell but they let socialist trash their economy. I don't think they can afford a war.
