Israel offered aid to Cyprus in the wake of an explosion at a naval base that killed at least 12 people.
The accident early Monday morning occurred after arms seized in 2009 from an Iranian shipment to Syria caught fire. More than 60 were injured in the blast, which also destroyed a power plant and leveled homes.
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman told Cypriot Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou in offering assistance Monday that Israel shares in his country's grief.
