ATHENS – A pair of Turkish F-16 fighter jets on Wednesday flew over the Greek islands of Farmakonisi, Lipsi, Fourni and Oinousses in the Aegean. This was the second time Turkish jets flew over Greek islands on the same day.

The F-16s flew over Farmakonisi at 12:13, Lipsi at 12:15, Fourni at 12:17, and Oinousses at 12:24, at a height of 26,000 feet.
