Unexploded Shells on Firing Range

Beykoy Artillery Range

The District Governor for Nicosia, Cemal Kuyucu, has warned that unexploded shells were found in the Beyköy Heavy Weapons firing Range area despite all efforts to retrieve them.

He issued a written statement saying that artillery firing exercises were carried out in the Beyköy Heavy Weapons Firing Range between 15-26 April and that unexploded shells had been found in the area despite all searches and attempts to recover unexploded ordnance. 

Kuyucu requested that these shells, which may threaten* the life and property of citizens, be reported as soon as they are seen or found to the Cyprus Turkish Peace Forces (KTBK) Mechanised Infantry Division Command (0392 236 8866) and the KTBK Artillery Regiment Command (0392 223 3487) so that they can be destroyed.

*In 2018, a 13-year-old boy died after he accidentally triggered an unexploded grenade on the military firing range at Mevlevi, in the Güzelyurt region. He had been collecting metal for scrap to help his family’s finances.[Ed.]
