Turkish coast vessel

Greek fisherman accused Turkish patrol boats of harassing them on Sunday on the coast of Leros, Arkoi, Agathonisi and other Greek islets in southeastern Aegean.

According to media sources, the fishermen were confronted by Turkish Coast Guard vessels escorting Turkish fishing boats into Greek territorial waters.

Evidence of the incident is confirmed in video footage secured by Greek newspaper Kathimerini, clearly showing Turkish patrol boats moving aggressively toward Greek fishing boats.

It is reported that Turkish fishermen fired into the air while entering Greek waters off Leros.
