Object which hit north Cyprus appears to have been missile, says FM

NICOSIA (Reuters) - An object which hit northern Cyprus overnight appears to have been a Russian-made missile, Turkish Cypriot foreign minister Kudret Ozersay said on Monday.

“The first assessment is that a Russian-made missile, part of the air defense system, which was part of the air defense system that took place last night in the face of an air strike against Syria, completed its range and fell into our country after it missed,” Ozersay said in a social media post.

The object hit a mountainside north of the capital Nicosia.
