In Cyprus, according to a news portal, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) organized a demonstration at a British air base and the Progressive Party of the Working People (AKEL) protested the Cyprus government of allowing the use of air bases.

KKE members gathered at the entrance gate of air base RAF Akrotiri, where four Tornado warplanes took off to take part in the missile strike.  The protesters carried placards with slogans such as ‘NATO killers go home’, read out a message saying that “The Anastasiades government once again participates, even actively, by facilitating the imperialists” and called to close down all foreign military bases.

AKEL also condemned the attack saying “judging from the unfortunate statements made yesterday by the government camp, that because the bases are military, they are entitled to do what they want, we conclude that not only did Mr Anastasiades say nothing to May, but on the contrary, the government endorsed those who believe that military might prevails over international law and ethics.”
