Missile that hit North Cyprus reached it in 1 minute, 30 seconds

The missile that hit North Cyprus from Syria early Monday morning reached Cyprus in a minute and a half, according to a new report.

An explosion occurred around 1:00am in the Tashkent region around 20 kms (12 miles) north-east of Lefkosa, in the foothills of the Besparmak mountain range. There were no casualties, although some homes were evacuated

The sound of the explosion, which set the hills on fire, was heard for miles around.

The report adds that the missile defense systems in Southern Cyprus were only active in a war situation and were not active in a peaceful situation and therefore did not destroy the missile.

The S-200 missile, which was thought to have been fired due to the ongoing war in Syria, accidentally missed it's target before landing at the BeĊŸparmaklar mountain near Tashkent in North Cyprus.

The missile exploded about 40-50 meters high and scattered in several direction in the area.

The Syrian Ministry of Defence issued a statement saying that Israeli warplanes were aiming at Syrian military position on the outskirts of Homs and Damascus fired missiles. The attack took place in Lebanese airspace.

TRNC authorities later disclosed that there was no poisonous gases or chemicals in the missile
