Turkish media are now presenting new maps that show the Tayfun missile with a longer range. The new maps come following the statements made by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that it can reach up to 1,000 km.
For two weeks now, Erdogan has been threatening to hit Greece with the missile. Yesterday he said that he asked for its range to reach 1,000 km, threatening a number of countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.
Turkish media note that "Greece is arming itself from Alexandroupolis to Crete and Kastelorizo" and that "the US has bases everywhere".
The Turkish TV network Haber Global reported: "Greece is arming itself and its entire territory has been turned into an American base. As you can see on the map, the USA has 9 bases in Greece.
"Some of them are used temporarily, but their total number is 9. Here, Alexandroupolis has a large importance as in the summer of 2021 they had transported 400 armoured vehicles, at a distance of 45 kilometres from our borders, i.e. under our noses.
"They are now planning the expansion and upgrade of the Souda base in Crete. There is a reason. Let's explain...
"Kastellorizo is the closest island to us, and the farthest on the mainland of Greece. The area between Crete and Kastellorizo is considered 'the soft underbelly of Greece.'
"They want to block the ships that will leave the Straits and arrive in the area. The modernised F-16 Viper and the French Rafale fighters will be installed at the Souda base."
