The 20-year-old victim on Sunday told Cypriot authorities she was attacked by five men in her hotel in the city of Famagusta.
Cypriot police have since arrested five Israeli men, three aged 19 and two aged 20 – following the alleged victim’s description of the attack and the suspects.
All five suspects were due in Famagusta district court yesterday (Monday).
The case comes after another British woman won an appeal to overturn a conviction for ‘lying’ about being gang-raped by 12 Israeli tourists in 2019.
They said the suspects will be held to facilitate their investigation.
The state-funded Cyprus News Agency said the arrests came after police secured witness testimony to support the allegation.
According to the Cypriot Philenews website, the five Israelis and the Briton will undergo medical examinations.
Israel’s foreign ministry said officials are in touch with Cypriot authorities as well as with families of the detained Israelis.
