Anastasiadis: The fire is the biggest tragedy that hit Cyprus apart from the invasion

The perimeter of the fire covers 55 square kilometers.

President Anastasiadis stated that the tragedy from the fire that has been affecting Cyprus since yesterday is unprecedented, except for the invasion of 1974.

“Unfortunately,” he said, “we have human losses. The damage recording crews have been prepared and as soon as it is safe they will enter the burned areas to record the damage “.

The perimeter of the fire, as the Cypriot president said, covers 55 square kilometers.

Mr. Anastasiadis said the fire is under partial control, but there are concerns about resurgence due to high temperatures and strong winds.

He said that at noon another plane from Greece is expected to arrive in Cyprus from Rhodes. Two aircraft from Israel are expected in a few hours.
