There is big trouble in the North of Cyprus, where Turkish jets are still operating. But the area is blocked off for the Press. In Nicosia machine gun fire continues to be exchanged between Greek and Turkish Cypriots. Whilst the UN Force merely observes. A Greek Cypriot was badly shot up by Turkish Bren fire just at the back of the Ledra Palace Hotel next to its newly opened swimming pool. The only bathers today were the "Blue Berets". At sunset a Greek Air Force Jet buzzed Nicosia, and established that the Greek Air Force had come to the Island, in undisclosed numbers, and would for the moment be based here. Greek Cypriot Forces were thoroughly delighted by Greece's positive stand, and for a few moments increased their firing at Turk positions along the Green Line.
