The area illegally “bounded by” to conduct naval exercises is located southwest, in a zone of 100 kilometers long and 65km wide, within blocks 7 and part of block 8 of the Cyprus EEZ. According to the illegal Turkish Navtex, the exercise will be conducted today and will last three hours, from noon to afternoon.
