Cyprus likely to be UK's station of strikes at Syria


(MENAFN) Greek newspaper Kathimerini reported that Tornado bombers are being readied at a British air force base on the island of Cyprus in case British Prime Minister Theresa May should order air strikes on Syria.

Airlines are being advised to exercise caution in civilian airspace for the next three days in an area that encompasses the island and surrounding waters.

"The only commercial flights above Syria on Wednesday were being flown by Syrian Air and Lebanon's Middle East Airlines, according to flight tracking website FlightRadar24," Kathimerini said.

"This comes after British Prime Minister Theresa May and U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to stop Syria from using chemical weapons, while Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the country's experts found "no trace" of chemical weapons use in Douma."
