About the harassment to 2 Turkish Fishing Vessels off the coast of İzmir/Karaburun
After receiving the information that Greek units fired on 2 Turkish Fishing Vessels between Chios and Karaburun and 1 Fisherman was injured in the leg on 22 February 2022, around 19.15, 2 Turkish Coast Guard Boats were immediately dispatched to the scene along with the 112 Emergency Medical Team.
No Greek assets was detected by the Turkish Coast Guard Boats that arrived at the scene of the incident, and the first aid to the person who was slightly injured in the leg was applied by the 112 Emergency Medical Team on the Turkish Coast Guard Boat and he was transferred to Çeşme State Hospital.
The investigation initiated by the Karaburun Public Prosecutor's Office regarding the incident is ongoing.
The shots fired by Greek assets to the defensless fishermen are unacceptable and it’s a crime against humanity.
