A routine British military exercise to conduct essential operational military training will be carried out at RAF Akrotiri between 8th-18th and 14th-16th March.

The training will include the movement of troops and vehicles, boats and helicopters and there may be some disturbance during these times. A number of the scenarios will include the use of training ammunition, the British bases said.

It called on the public not to be concerned if explosions were heard in the local area. “This occasionally happens when certain atmospheric conditions prevail,” a statement said.

“British Forces Cyprus remains committed to restricting the impact of military training to a minimum where possible and with due regard for the environment and habitat,” it added

As with previous exercises some of the scenarios will be performed outside the Sovereign Base Areas with the support of the Republic of Cyprus.
