A mission from Cyprus departed early on Friday for Greece to assist in the efforts to extinguish the fire in Mount Parnitha.

The 31-member mission was set up after the coordinated efforts of the relevant state agencies, particularly the Ministry of Justice and Public Order, and Minister Anna Koukkides-Procopiou.

The mission consists of 13 individuals from the Cyprus Fire Service, 13 from Civil Defense, and 5 from the Ambulance Service.

In a social media post, the Fire Service Chief said “We wish them to be safe, and we hope that their support for our colleagues in Greece, who have been fighting the wildfires for days now, will be as constructive as possible”.
