The Turkish forces occupied a small patch of disputed land on the border with Greece.

The British newspaper of the Sun quoted from Greek sources that about 35 Turkish soldiers entered the flood plains area of ​​1.6 hectares on the eastern bank of the Evros River.

It established the Special Forces and a camp there, raised the Turkish flag, and rejected the Greek demands for withdrawal.

The Greek newspaper of Kathimerini reported this week that the Turkish police forces have maintained a continuous presence in the area in recent weeks, and have hindered the Greek army's geographic service efforts to expand a border fence.

Tensions between Turkey and Greece have increased in recent weeks over Ankara's decision to open its land borders in late February for migrants and refugees seeking to enter Greece, as well as a dispute over gas exploration rights off the coast of Cyprus, in addition to the Turkish claims to Greek waters.
