Reader comment on item: Kastelorizo Updates

Submitted by Anthony, Jul 25, 2020 at 09:02

Technically speaking, "Kastelorizo" is not a single island but several: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a8/Kastelorizo.svg

And there's soldiers there so if Turkey seizes it, it won't be "without a shot."

Also that professor never said that "it belongs to Turkey". I don't know if that is how turkish media misreported his words, it wouldn't surprise me, but it's false.

Daniel Pipes replies:

1. Yes, but only one island is inhabited and all attention is on it.

2. Those Greek soldiers will likely be ordered not to fight.

3. What did he say, then?
