Turkey lands military drone in Cyprus’ occupied north


Amid growing tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean over drilling rights off the coast of Cyprus, a Turkish military drone landed in the occupied part of Cyprus on December 16 after the internationally unrecognised Turkey-backed breakaway government of “Northern Cyprus” approved the use of Famagusta Airport as a base for both unarmed and armed unmanned aerial vehicles.


Tolga Atakan, the transport minister of the secessionist government said the Turkish drones were a countermeasure to the acquisition of Israeli drones by Cyprus in October and was done to “protect the legitimate rights and interests of the TRNC (the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) and Turkey,” TRNC representatives said.
