Cyprus Fully Respects Places of Worship of Turkish Cypriots

The Government of Cyprus rejects and denounces the Turkish Cypriot side’s attempt to politicize a fire that was set to the Haji Ibrahim Aga mosque in Limassol, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou underlined on Tuesday.
Stephanou said that the fire was set intentionally in the early hours of Great Saturday, destroying the mosque’s wooden roof and causing damage to the external walls.

According to the spokesman, the place was inspected by officers of the Department of Antiquities who have assessed that the damages caused are not of archaeological significance and works for their reparation have already begun. The police have been given clear instructions to fully investigate the incident and find the perpetrators, Stephanou added.
