Israel Denies Turkish Reports as 'Baseless'


Israel denied reports that appeared in the Turkish media on Monday that claimed that Israel is planning to deploy thousands of troops in Cyprus in efforts to protect oil and gas interests in the region. The report, which appeared in Turkey's Anatolia news agency and appeared doubtful to reporters, claimed that Israel planned to send approximately 20,000 troops to Greek Cyprus.
