Troop Transfers Part of Peorganisation Plan Started a Year Ago, ANA Says

April 5, 2018

ATHENS. Any troop and personnel transfers within the Greek armed forces are part of an ongoing reorganisation plan that began a year earlier and will continue for some time, sources at the defence ministry commented on Thursday in response to press reports.
Changes in the way that new recruits are enlisted, which began to be implemented in 2018, are also part of the same plan, the sources added.

The media were reporting an announcement on Wednesday by Defence Minister Panos Kammenos, who said that a total of 7,000 Greek soldiers will shortly be transferred to the Greek islands and the northeastern borders of Evros after observing a military exercise at the eastern Aegean island of Ikaria.

Kammenos said one half of the soldiers would be placed at the Aegean Islands and the other half at Evros.


ATHENS — Two sailboats carrying dozens of migrants arrived on a southern Greek island early Wednesday, with the first one running aground on rocks.
