BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his country is looking very seriously at any act of aggression being carried out in the Eastern Mediterranean region, regardless of which party did it, including Turkey.

Netanyahu published a new tweet  on Thursday, in which he clarified that he had received the Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias.

The Israeli premier said that his country is standing by Athens, in light of the crisis between Turkey and Greece in the eastern Mediterranean.

The Israeli Prime Minister pointed out that the visit by Dendias to Israel is another expression of the important friendship between his country and Greece, noting that the bilateral relations are expanding on the common geopolitical interests.

Turkey has previously sent a seismic research ship to the disputed area in the eastern Mediterranean, in a move that prompted Greece to raise its alert levels, while the mission aims to explore for potential oil and gas deposits south of the Greek island of Kastellorizo.

The Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, called for a meeting with army leaders on Monday, after Turkey issued an international maritime warning, known as “Naftex”.

Last Thursday, Greece and Egypt signed an agreement to create an exclusive economic zone in waters that contain oil and gas reserves; this was later rejected by Turkey and called invalid by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Seems that the Libyan-Turkish bilateral agreement to confiscate the sea area in the route of the planed East Med-pipeline did not go too well with Israel. Greece and Israel recently had ratified an agreement to build it and Ankara had claimed that it needed Turkish permission. After turning the Hagia Sophia into a mosque again, Turkey had made comments about old claims to Al-Aqsa. I wonder whether the Israelis likes foreign claims to any building in Jerusalem, which they see as their capital. There were also largely unnoticed talks between Palestine and Turkey about a bilateral agreement on maritime gas… Read more »

Imbecile Ottomaniac leader should read the EU constitution’s article 42(7) : He’s “just” about to start a war against the European Union… If he sums the military power of EU countries, he’ll notice that this means… 1.85 millions militaries and 2000 jet-fighters… In other terms, it’s on par with… Starting a war against China… There are already 2 French Rafale based in Cyprus and as it is well know, who says French Rafale says ASMPA, a nice nuclear stealth cruise missile flying its 300 kilotons warhead at Mach 3… Ankara can be nuked even without leaving the Cyprus airspace… This… Read more »

How funny : Erdogan attacks other Muslims in Syria and Iraq. Egypt, Greece, Cyprus and Israel are allied against Turkey. Seems that the most populated country in the alliance against the Ottomaniac madman is a Muslim one, moreover Egypt is backed by UAE and KSA… The UAE has decided to normalize relations with Israel, now diplomatic missions are opening, people will travel freely between the 2 countries. Israeli drones bomb ISIS terrorists in Sinai! Frankly, the world won’t live in peace as long Islam will exist. This death cult has already slaughtered 750-850 millions people over its 1400 years of… Read more »
