I've booked a holiday to Cyprus next July, about an hour's drive away from the air base where the air strikes on Syria are taking off from. What does everyone think? Do you think it's safe to go ahead with the holiday or would you cancel it? TIA

I'd say it's safe to go ahead. Bombers have been taking off from Akrotiri for the last year - I think it'd be riskier to have a holiday in London tbh

Thank you Sunny, I really appreciate your opinion.

I live 5 minutes drive from Akrotiri where the jets are taking off from. I'm not worried and neither is anyone else around here. As Sunny says, its nothing new.

Thank you Effendi, I really appreciate that, and it has definitely reassured me.

I'd say it's fine. Really wouldn't worry me. What are you concerned about specifically - that Cyprus will become a target for a terrorist attack? I would have thought the risk would be lower than being in the UK to be honest.
