A routine military exercise to conduct essential operational military training will be carried out from RAF Akrotiri between March 3 and 22,the British Bases said on Friday.

The training may include the movement of troops and vehicles, boats and helicopters and there may be some disturbance during these times. A number of the scenarios will include the use of training ammunition.

“Please do not be concerned if explosions are heard in the local area. This occasionally happens when certain atmospheric conditions prevail,” the Bases’ statement added.
