Turkish airspace patrolled by fighter jets.

The introduction of the state of emergency in Turkey was initiated by Recep Erdogan, who, fearing another attempt at a coup, ordered the Turkish Air Force to conduct thorough patrolling of airspace. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the Turkish authorities reject any threat to the movement of civil aircraft, which, incidentally, may lead to further restrictions for flights from international services, provided that the emergency regime is extended .

It should be clarified that on the eve of the day the Turkish Air Force received an official order to destroy any aircraft that did not initiate themselves, and this applies to both civilian and military aircraft.
