From Wednesday until Saturday, fighter jets from the French air force will take part in a joint training exercise within Cyprus’ air space, the defence ministry said.

An announcement said the move was part of training “in real conditions”. It is part of the implementation of the defence cooperation programme between Cyprus and France, some of which will also take place on land.

The exercises also form part of the Talos 22 exercise, which will be held on Friday that concerns a mock attack by fighter aircraft to test the capabilities of the national guard’s anti-aircraft systems.
