'Exchanged fire?'[edit]

As Cypriot forces were trying to negotiate with the hostage-takers at the airport, Egyptian troops launched their own assault without authorization from the Cypriots. The unauthorized raid led to the Egyptians and the Cypriots exchanging gunfire, killing or injuring more than 20 of the Egyptian commandos.

I don't believe you get 15 killed and 15 injured on one side shot by domestic police, and 0 killed and 0 injured shot by the most elite commando squad a country can muster. Unless someone has evidence that the Egyptian commando's fired on the Cypriot police, I would remove that 'exchanging gunfire' replaced with 'the Cypriots fired on the Egyptian commandos' which is the only thing the current established facts support. <!//– ☠ ʇdɯ0ɹd ɥsɐq ☠ // user // talk // twitter //–> 15:34, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
