Israel’s military signed a deal with Cyprus to build a new electronic surveillance system along the country’s demilitarized border with northern Cyprus.

The 27.5 million euro ($31.8 million) system will provide 24-hour video surveillance, spokesman for the Cypriot Defense Ministry Christos Piers told Cyprus News Agency. The project is expected to take three years to complete.
