Israel-Cyprus collaboration in military exercises in Cyprus's airspace are "routine for the Israeli military and there is no political agenda behind this," clarified the Israeli embassy on Thursday, according to newspaper Cyprus Mail.

The statement follows a report in the Phileleftheros newspaper that Israel and Greece were holding the joint exercises in order to send a message to Turkey.
