What's triggered the latest tension between greece and turkiye? | inside story

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “What’s triggered the latest tension between Greece and Turkiye? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

Greece and Turkiye have been in conflict over maritime borders and energy exploration rights for decades.

In the latest escalation, Ankara has accused Athens of deploying US armoured vehicles on two Aegean islands close to Turkiye’s coast.

The two nations are NATO-allies but historic foes and continue to accuse each other of undermining regional peace and stability.

So, can this tension be contained or could it spiral out of control?
