Greek coast guard opens fire on Turkish boat

GREEK COAST GUARD OPENS FIRE ON TURKISH BOAT

The Greek coast guard opened warning fire on a Turkish cargo ship in the Aegean Sea off the coast of Rhodes island on Monday.

Greek coastal guard boats Monday opened fire on a Turkish commercial ship at international waters in the Aegean Sea off the coast of Rhodes, according to Turkish Interior Ministry sources.

The sources, who gave information on the condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said two Turkish coastal guard boats and a Turkish assault boat were sent to the area, where the incident happened.

The ship named "ACT" was brought to Turkish waters by coastal guards, the sources said, adding that statements of the ship's crew will be recorded.

The sources also said there are bullet marks on the ship, but nobody was wounded.

Turkey strongly condemns Greece's 'unmeasured' act of opening fire on Turkish ship.
