Increased security measures will be applied in Nicosia and Larnaca on Wednesday following the arrival of Israeli President Isaac Herzog for his official visit.

According to an announcement released by the police, there will be road closures and diversions in both cities, as well as on the Larnaca-Nicosia motorway from 10am until 4pm.
