Israel to build surveillance system along Cyprus green line

Israel has signed a deal with the Republic of Cyprus to build a surveillance system across the country's green line that separates the internationally recognised republic from the Turkish-occupied north.

Officials said the new system, set to cost 27.5m euros ($32m) and take three years to complete, will aim to crack down on smuggling and informal immigration into the EU member state.

"It is an electronic surveillance system that will provide us with images 24 hours a day," Cypriot Defence Ministry spokesperson Christos Pieris told the Cyprus News Agency.

"It will be installed at various points on the Green Line."
