Report: Israel to deploy 20,000 commandos in Greek Cyprus

Israel plans to deploy 20,000 commandos in Greek Cyprus in order to protect its energy projects in the area, Anatolia news agency reported Sunday. According to the report, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Greek Cypriot counterpart, Demetris Christofias, met in February in order to discuss the two countries' joint ventures.


Netanyahu reportedly offered to undertake all the expenses required to construct a gas plant needed to extract the natural gas found in the Mediterranean Sea and in exchange, he asked that all the 10,000 personnel that would work at the plant be brought in from Israel with their families.
