War of nerves now. Will Greece keep Turkish ships out of their Exclusive Economic Zone as they promised? Will Turkey backdown as it embarrassingly did a few weeks ago? I doubt Erdogan will allow that to happen again. Serious escalation by Turkey that could lead to conflict.

7 Turkish warships are accompanying the Oruç Reis research vessel into Greece’s Exclusive Economic Zone. No word just yet on how exactly Greece will respond to this provocation.

The "meltdown" of the Turkish lira, as the professor correctly calls, is why Erdogan escalated hostilities with Greece today. He is distracting Turks as much as possible from his own failures and corruption, and Turks are stupid enough to be fooled.

MAJOR: Greek officers and non-commissioned officers who are on leave have been ordered to return immediately to their units, while no new licenses for leave are being approved. Greece is dealing with Turkey's latest (and endless) escalations of hostilities very seriously.

As I said, Erdogan is distracting Turks from the bad economy by creating tensions with Greece. Turks are dumb enough to be fooled by it. Turkish Energy Minister Fatih Dönmez just said "83 million Turks support Oruç Reis" violating Greek maritime space.

Is Turkey preparing for war? Tonight, all programs are cancelled on Turkish state-funded propaganda outlet TRT News so they can discuss developments in the Mediterranean on the Gündem Special program between 21:00 and 23:00 local time.

Greek sources saying the Turkish Oruç Reis research vessel escorted by Turkish warships has entered Greek maritime space, laid cables but did not conduct seismic survey's. Greek warships on their way to chase out the invaders.

NATO has once again given a weak response to Ankara as the Turkish Oruç Reis research vessel has illegally entered Greek maritime space.

Turkish Lieutenant General Pekin: Conflict is inevitable now. Turkey needs to show strength. No agreement can be made at the table with Greece. Turkey should do seismic exploration on Meis island. This is part of the [Turkish] homeland."

According to Greek Defense Ministry (), 2 F-16 jets and 11 other aircrafts (3 CN-235 & 8 helicopters) committed several violations in the Aegean. The helicopters may have been trying to locate the Greek submarines that they cannot find. Current line up of GR/TR warships:

Rumours that both Greece and Turkey have given deadlines before war is declared. I doubt Turkey even wants war. Every Turkish jet that violated Greek airspace today was unarmed. Erdogan is probably making a big show to distract Turks from 1USD buying 7.32 Turkish Liras.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will have a telephone conversation with Greek political leaders tomorrow. This means the Greek leadership believes the potential for war tonight to be low since the conversation will take place tomorrow.

Turkey’s lying to their own people that seismic research on the Greek continental shelf has begun. The noise & vibration from Greek & Turkish warships makes seismic research impossible. So far, Turkish ships are sailing around international waters, different to violating a seabed
