Limassol tavern explosion linked to personal feud

Minor damage, major alert: Zakaki tavern hit by IED


Police were put on high alert early Monday after an explosion shook a tavern in Zakaki, Limassol. The blast occurred shortly before 5:00 a.m., causing minor damage to the establishment.

Authorities confirmed that an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated at the entrance of the tavern, which is co-owned by a 36-year-old man and his 27-year-old brother. One of the owners is a known TikTok personality, adding a layer of public interest to the case.

Lefteris Kyriakou, Head of the Limassol CID, reported that evidence from the scene is being collected and sent for scientific analysis. Investigators have been on site since early morning, meticulously searching for clues to identify those responsible for the attack.

Kyriakou revealed that there are indications the incident stems from personal differences rather than professional disputes. "Preliminary examinations suggest a personal motive, but we will confirm this once the investigations are complete," he said.

Both owners have provided statements to the police. The area has been cordoned off, and the investigation continues as authorities evaluate all available information to determine the direction of the inquiry.

The incident underscores the potential for personal conflicts to escalate into violent acts, even in seemingly peaceful communities.
