The National Interest
Battle for the High Seas | by Professor Nikolas Gvosdev
Over the last year, Turkey has sent naval vessels to shadow and harass the ships and equipment being used by Noble Energy, a U.S. firm which has the contract to develop the Aphrodite field; this, in turn, raises the risks for a clash with Israeli forces, which are on patrol to protect the work on developing these fields.
