Four nations take part in Nemesis

Three warships, eight aircraft and three private vessels took part in a large-scale multinational exercise dubbed Nemesis on Wednesday off Cyprus.

Navy and air force search and rescue units participated in various scenarios including counter-terrorism operations on oil/gas platforms, boarding operations on vessels, evacuation and rescue operations, mass rescue operations, as well as anti-pollution operations within the Cypriot FIR.

Two Greek and French navy frigates took part in the exercise, along with one missile and four patrol boats of the Israeli navy, four Cypriot navy vessels, and two marine police patrol boats.

A tanker, two anti-pollution vessels, and a support ship also participated.

Five helicopters from Cyprus, France, and Britain, as well as three aeroplanes from Greece, the US, and Cyprus, were also used.
