Two pairs of Turkish F-4 fighter jets violated Greek air space between the eastern Aegean islands of Lesvos and Chios on Monday, Greek authorities said.

The first pair flew at a low altitude of 3,000 feet over the islets of Makronisi and Anthropofagoi at 1.57 p.m., while shortly afterward a second pair flew twice over Agathonisi and the islet of Kouneli.

The incidents were the latest in a string of violations amid increased tensions between the two countries.
