A Greek man has been arrested in the north for attacking an individual while yelling ‘Turks out’, Turkish Cypriot media reported on Friday.

The suspect was brought on Friday before a court in the north, according to Kibris Postasi.

Authorities accuse the Greek citizen of attacking an individual loudly proclaiming ‘Cyprus, Russia, and Greece are brothers, Turks out, this is Greece’. The incident took place after his arrival in the occupied territories on Thursday, through the Ledra Palace checkpoint.

Procedures have been initiated for his ‘deportation,’ and until then, he will remain ‘under arrest’ in the occupied territories for three days, the newspaper reported.
