Greece Fires On Turkish Vessel, Says It Entered Territorial Waters
Greece has fired on a Turkish vessel and said that it entered territorial waters. Turkey, on the other hand, says that the incident happened in international waters, and that Greece shot at it with 'harassment fire'.
Turkish News Anadolu Agency has reported that two Greek Coast Guard vessels fired at the Turkish ship Anatolion. Hebrew language news, Abu Ali Express claims that it was fired on after it entered Greek waters. Turkey, however claims that the incident happened in international waters, in the Aegean Sea near the Turkish island of Bozcaada, and has demanded an investigation into the incident.
The news agency also posted a video showing a vessel firing at the Turkish ship, with a bullet hole in the one of the vessel's windows.

Abu Ali Express reported that the Anatolion is actually the "Mavi Marmara", which was renamed, and reported that it was the same Turkish vessel that attempted to reach Gaza in 2010 to "deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza".
The news agency continued to say that "the point was to break the siege" and that "for that reason they ignored Israeli warnings and refused Israeli offers to send aid through one of Gaza's land crossings".
It also said that Israeli forces had confiscated the vessel, and that nine Turkish mercenaries were killed, and around 10 IDF soldiers injured, which it said led to Turkish and Israeli relations being severed.
The Turkish coastguard has reported that there were no casualties due to the incident, but called the incident by Greece "harassment fire"
The Greek Coastguard has put out a statement saying that it did fire "warning shots" at a vessel that was "moving suspiciously" in Greek territorial waters off the island of Lesbos.
The Greek Coastguard also said that the vessel did not allow an inspection to be carried out, and was escorted to Turkish waters, after which Turkish maritime authorities were notified of the incident.
