"Greece is increasing, tensions in the eastern Mediterranean by holding military exercises on the island of Chios, located 7.5 km from the border with Turkey," noted the report,

The report falsely added that Athens "violates the rules of Treaty of Lausanne" with this exercise.

Sözcü also refers to Greece's joint military exercises with Saudi Arabia in the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as with France, the United States and the United Arab Emirates.

"Six fighter jets belonging to Saudi Arabia for this exercise were deployed at the Souda Military Base on the island of Crete," noted the article.

"Six F-15s belonging to Saudi Arabia, which stands on the side of Athens, landed in Crete.
