I am leaning to propaganda but it is vey shady that there are more examples of this as posted by others.
I really want to think it is not true and misreported but I put nothing past human nature in these times.

to the sinking raft at 0.26 seconds in the video

I don't think this vid shows anything of the sort and I think the stupid refugees in their overloaded rafts/boats need to be more careful. Typical anti-something Western propaganda.

I believe that is supposedly the Turkish Coast guard rescuing them after it was popped by the Greek guy
I know that it is RT, better than FB though!
The footage was released by the Turkish Institute of Public Diplomacy and shows a person on board the Greek vessel trying to sink the inflatable dinghy, despite it being packed with 58 refugees.
Do not know much about Turkish/Greek relations but is there reason to believe the Turks would be orchestrating propaganda against them?
Link to telegraph as well

Greek coast guard routinely sinks , cripples attacks refugee boats .
Greek thugs roam the Aegean seas looking to rob and rape refugees .
Anyone can go and ask those Syrian refugees and they will tell you that the Greeks don't play fair with them .
Tzipras had a meeting with Davutoglu and was shown the footage . He has allegedly promised to find and punish the criminals .

he is trying to get the rope for the boat to secure it ,is this propaganda to try to state otherwise ?
why is the video cut why does the footage not continue ?
AT 0.26 YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE CREW MEMBER HOLDING OUT HIS HAND TO THEM.
This video footage seems to show the Greek coast guard deliberately sinking a life raft full of Syrian migrants, then leaving them for the Turkish to deal with.
Footage recorded on November 12 shows a crewman on a Greek-marked coast guard ship jabbing a pole into an inflatable ship in the Aegean Sea.
The raft's 58 passengers scream and shout as the vessel starts to sink, before the Greek vessel sails away.
The Greek coastguard has strenuously denied allegations from Turkey that it deliberately tried to sink an inflatable refugee boat carrying Syrian refugees crossing the Aegean Sea. A video appeared to show a man trying to prod a life raft with a pole.
The footage was released by the Turkish Institute of Public Diplomacy and appears to show a person on board the Greek vessel apparently trying to sink the inflatable dinghy, despite it being packed with 58 refugees.
The life raft began to sink, with the refugees frantically blowing whistles and shouting for help. The Turkish coastguard intervened and pulled the migrants to safety from the dinghy. They were then taken to the Turkish port of Didim.
As Europe grapples with the rising tide of migrants, asylum seekers are facing opposition and, in some cases, violence from locals. Human Rights Watch said Thursday that asked men – often armed – have been attacking and intercepting boats in the Aegean Sea carrying refugees on their way to Greece, one of many clashes reported this week.
Witnesses have described eight separate incidents in which assailants damaged the boats by removing the engines or fuel or puncturing the hulls of inflatable rafts. Some of the boats were towed back into Turkish waters. The latest such incident took place on October 9, 2015.
