Turkish Drone Takes Off From Cyprus Island Amidst Tensions with Greece

A Turkish drone took off from the island of Cyprus, Monday, December 16, in a move that could escalate tensions between Turkey and Greece.
–––––––––
READ MORE: Turkey has dispatched a surveillance and reconnaissance drone to the breakaway north of ethnically divided island nation of Cyprus amid tensions over offshore oil and gas exploration, Turkey’s state-run media said Monday.

The Anadolu news agency said the Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 drone took off from an airbase in Dalaman, Turkey, and touched down Monday at the airport in Gecitkale — known as Lefkoniko in Greek, on Cyprus.

Kudret Ozersay, foreign minister of the self-declared Turkish Cypriot state, told reporters Sunday that the Turkish deployment would be limited to unarmed drones as there was “no need” for armed ones.

It’s unclear what the drones will be specifically tasked to do.

    To little to late, Israeli drones dominate the skies already down there….Turkey will be isolated even further under Erdogan….

    Erdogan, you are a misguided evil fool. May God have pitty on your soul. Holy Saint Paisios (many of his prophesies  have come to light) has prophesied that Turkey will be punished for its sins and misdeeds.Turkey will be divided in thirds. Repent you infidels for the hour of the Lord has come.
