CYPRUS: THE REUNIFICATION
On 15 July 1974, the Greek military junta carried out a coup d'état in Cyprus, to unite the island with Greece with the result that Turkey invaded the island, citing a right to intervene to restore the constitutional order from the 1960 Treaty of Guarantee. After a ceasefire, Turkey landed more troops and occupied over a third of the island, resulting in a UN Buffer Zone dividing Greek-controlled Cyprus from the newly created Turkish REPUBLIC OF NORTHERN CYPRUS.
Turkey has now ordered its Armored Forces to be carried by heavy transport to Cyprus to occupy the entire island.
The 2nd Armored, 3rd Armored, and 66th Mechanized Brigades are to advance to the capital, NICOSIA, which is divided by the UN Buffer Zone, and capture the southern half of the city under Greek control. After capturing Nicosia, the towns of PAPHOS, LIMASSOL, AND LARNACA are to be captured.
