International Military - Previously, Turkey's F-16 was reported to have received a radar key from Greece. The radar key came from a Greek S-300 battery located on the Greek island of Crete. During the F-16's flying reconnaissance mission, a radar lock was also captured at an altitude of 10,000 feet.

Quoted from Bulgarian Military, a country's radar interference with another country's military aircraft is defined as a "hostile act" in the NATO Rules of Engagement. Moreover, the S-300 is an air defense system made in Russia.

Another thing that became the highlight of this event is that Greece as a NATO member has placed a radar lock on standard NATO warplanes from NATO member countries with Russian air defense systems.

Quoted from Daily Sabah, Greek jets locked their radar on Turkish warplanes. In the end, the Turkish side responded with full force. This is the second time Greek jets have locked their radar on Turkish aircraft on a NATO mission.

Previously, a similar incident occurred in the Eastern Mediterranean. The incident was reported by Turkey to NATO authorities, until finally the Greek military attache was summoned to the Ministry of Defense. The Turkish F-16s were tasked with protecting American B-52s loaded with AIM-120 AMRAAM and AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles.

Therefore, operations were carried out in Slovak airspace to protect NATO's eastern flank. However, during the operation, Greek Air Force fighter aircraft placed a radar lock on the Turkish F-16 in service.

According to the information received, there was an immediate response to the blockade by the Turkish fighter jets. Greek warplanes were eventually withdrawn from the area. Turkey and Greece are often at loggerheads, one of which is over claims to jurisdiction in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Overlapping claims over their continental shelf, maritime boundaries, air space, energy, the ethnically divided island of Cyprus, the status of islands in the Aegean Sea, and migrants.
