Turkey developed a plan to invade Greece and Armenia during the height of the war in Syria, according to leaked documents.

The plans that were drawn up were named after an 11th century Turkish military commander, according to Nordic Monitor, who have seen the documents.

The documents were reportedly part of a PowerPoint presentation that was set to be given by the Turkish General Staff – who preside over the Armed Forces in Turkey – for internal planning review.

The plans are believed to have centred around maintaining offensive and deterrence capabilities on the western front, while moving troops during the war in Syria.

Anti-Greek rhetoric has been growing in Ankara as the Erdoğan reigeme looks to bolster its influence in the area, as fears of a military confrontation between the two NATO allies are escalating.

Titled ‘TSK Çakabey Harekât Planlama Direktifi’ – TSK (Turkish Armed Forces) Çakabey Operation Planning Directive – the presentation was dated June 13, 2014 at the height of the Syrian civil war that started in 2011 as part of the Arab Spring.

The Nordic Monitor reported that this suggests that the plan was likely an updated version and finalised after a review of an earlier draft, and that the plan could still be active.

The documents also included a plan to invade Armenia called ‘TSK Altay Harekât Planlama Direktifi,’ dated August 15 2000.

The Monitor reported that the documents were exchanged on a secure email system by top General Staff, and that they appear to have been leaked accidentally in a court case file that was submitted as part of probes into the failed military coup against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in July 2016.
