Homeless Syrian migrant responsible for fire in Larnaca Mosque

Last week Wednesday, a Mosque in Larnaca, in the southern part of Cyprus was set on fire and the incident has generated a lot of reactions from Turkey and the TRNC.

The fire at the Buyuk Cami, a Mosque in Larnaca, had been set last week Wednesday night and caused some damage to the door before it was put out.

Following the incident, an investigation revealed that the fire was set on the Mosque by a homeless Syrian Syrian migrant after the hodja refused to let him sleep there at night.” Police said the case was reported to them the next day

On Monday, Greek Cypriot police said they have arrested a 27-year-old third country national in connection with the fire incident. 

Police said the incident apparently had no nationalist or racial motives behind it.

The incident had irked Turkish President, Tayyip Erdogan, who warned that the culprits will be punished.

“Of course, this attack in south Cyprus will not remain unanswered.” “Do not commit such acts of sabotage at our temples. You will pay a heavy price for your participation in such a sabotage.”

TRNC president, Ersin Tatar said Greek Cypriots continued to vandalise mosques.

“I strongly condemn the fact that while our appeals for dialogue with the Greek Cypriot side aiming at an agreement in the Cyprus problem continue, it was attempted to demolish the Buyuk Cami in Larnaca by setting it on fire,” he said in a written statement.
