The government of Greece has dispatched humanitarian aid to Cyprus in anticipation of a potential influx of refugees.

According to Ekathimerini, the immediacy of aid from Greece comes after Cyprus’ request for assistance due to current “developments in the Middle East”, an announcement from the Climate Crisis and Civil Protection Ministry stated on Tuesday.

The Cypriot request was made through the European Civil Protection Mechanism.

Greece has already delivered various materials to assist with hosting refugees, including 200 tents and 800 sleeping bags to Cyprus since last week.
