Cyprus, Greece and Turkey have all been using the same timezone, EET (Eastern European Timezone), which is UTC+2 (and UTC+3 at "summer", Daylight Saving).
I guess what you have heard is related to the announcement of the Turkish government to stop the daylight saving changes and fix the country's timezone to UTC+3 (the EET's daylight saving timezone).
Daylight Saving End Date
The government of Turkey has announced that the country will remain on daylight saving time year round.
Previously Turkey was scheduled to end Daylight Saving Time on
Sunday October 30, 2016 at 4:00 AM local time.
I'm not sure whether the northern part of Cyprus will follow with a similar decision or not but according to the same site, it will: 2016 Time Zones - Kyrenia

And also according to this news post:
Cyprus to have two time zones, north to follow Turkey in refusing to turn clocks back
Cyprus will have two time zones, an hour apart, as of October 31,
after the Turkish Cypriot ‘parliament’ decided on Thursday to follow
Turkey’s example and not return to daylight-saving time.
Turkey has decided not to turn its clocks back an hour next month when
daylight-saving time comes into effect on October 30.
Later in the day it was reported that the Turkish Cypriot side would
follow the same example which will leave them an hour ahead of their
Greek Cypriot compatriots on the other side of the Green Line going
into October 31.
CNA reported that after a meeting of the Turkish Cypriot ‘parliament’
on Thursday the north decided to stick with summer time.
Last year Turkey waited a week to fall in line with the rest of the
world for a period of around a week before changing to daylight saving
time, causing frustration both in Turkey and in the north as computers
and smartphones automatically dialled back an hour.
