Turkey Unhappy U.S. F-22’s Flew Over Occupied Part of Cyprus

NICOSIA – After the United States ended an arms embargo against the Greek-Cypriot government that’s a member of the European Union, Turkey was also upset that American F-22’s flew over part of the island that’s been occupied since two unlawful 1974 invasions.

The fighter jets are said to have flown over Famagusta, part of Turkish-occupied Cyprus, on a mission carried out by F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft from the 90th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, said The Eurasian Times.

The F-22 Raptors arrived in Souda Bay, Crete to carry out an Agile Combat Employment (ACE) Exercise where there is a US Naval base and as there is a growing American military presence in the country.

Greek media reported that Cyprus approved the latest mission of Cyprus’ foreign ministry after Washington obtained a verbal approval note to perform the drill through the U.S. Embassy.


NICOSIA - Even an earthquake couldn't bring Turkey to recognize Cyprus, reportedly refusing offers of help in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake that saw a number of countries dispatch rescuers and other crews to help, including Greece.
