Cyprus Crisis 1974 – COLD WAR DOCUMENTARY

November 9, 2019


The strategic location of Cyprus meant that
it saw constant invasions throughout its history – the Greeks, the Romans, the Arabs, the
Franks and the Turks all vied for it. In the second half of the 20th century, the island
erupted into another war, with the local and mainland Greeks and Turks fighting a full-scale
war in 1974. Welcome to our video on the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, also called the Cyprus
peace operation, voted for by our patrons and youtube members. If you are interested

Sea, inhabited by majority Greek and minority Turkish population, had been ruled by the
Ottoman Empire since 1571, up until 1878 when Britain took control over it, and formally
annexed it in 1914. Cyprus was under British control until 1960, when the island proclaimed
its independence. But the process leading to independence of Cyprus was far from peaceful.
Greek and Turkish communities had different plans for the island, and the British had
to find a solution which would keep both sides content. Greek Cypriots wanted unification
with Greece – enosis. Their strongest organization was EOKA, which sought to achieve independence
from Britain first and then to unify with Greece. Turkish Cypriots wanted the partition
of Cyprus between Greece and Turkey, the plan which was called Taksim. The most prominent
organization of Turkish Cypriots was TMT. Intercommunal Greek-Turkish violence in Cyprus
was regular in the 1950-70s, and the Constitution of Cyprus, approved by the Zurich agreement
between Turkey, Greece and the UK, did not bring peace to the Island. According to the
Constitution, the president of Cyprus was to be a Greek elected by the Greek community,
and the vice-president would be a Turk elected by the Turks. Both of them would have veto
power. 30 percent of the cabinet ministers and state officials would be Turks, and both
communities would have high autonomy from each other. The Turkish, Greek and British
armies had military bases on the island, and were the guarantors of its independence.
Greek Cypriots were unhappy with the privileges provided to Turkish Cypriots, and a number
of times in the 1960s violence erupted. In 1963 the violence resulted in the death of
364 Turkish and 174 Greek Cypriots, the destruction of 109 Turkish Cypriot or mixed villages,
and the displacement of 25,000–30,000 Turkish Cypriots. At the time, Turkey was on the brink
of invading Cyprus to protect the Turkish population, but a US diplomatic intervention
and direct talks between Turkey and Greece calmed tension down a bit.
By 1974 the Greek Cypriot leadership, under Makarios, cooled down on necessity of Enosis.
But Greece, ruled by a military junta, promoted Enosis and cooperated with local pro-Enosis
forces such as EOKA. In 1974 the Makarios government was overthrown
by Cypriot National Guard elements, led by Greek officers. A vehemently pro-Enosis, anti-Turkish
member of EOKA, Nikos Sampson, was declared the president. Turkey issued a list of demands
to Greece via the US negotiator. These demands included the immediate removal of Nikos Sampson,
the withdrawal of 650 Greek officers from the Cypriot National Guard, the admission
of Turkish troops to protect their population, equal rights for both populations, and access
to the sea from the northern coast for Turkish Cypriots. They called on Britain to ensure
the neutrality of Cyprus as one of the guarantors. Britain refused and Turkey started planning
an invasion of Cyprus. At the time 117k Turks were living on the
island, mainly in the enclaves in Nicosia, Famagusta, Larnaka and Limassol. The Turkish
Cypriots had a 10-13k man standing army, and were able to mobilize up to 20k men. They
had control of the strategic Nicosia – Kyrenia highway, which made the communication for
Greek Cypriots with the North of the island more difficult.
The main force of Greek Cypriots on the island was the National Guard, headed by Greek officers,
with a standing army of 12k men and 32 tanks, having the potential to mobilize up to 40k
men. Along with that, EOKA had 5k men and the elite Greek regiment, ELDYK had 1200 men.
The plan of the Turkish army – Atilla 1 – was to land in Kyrenia, and secure territories
including the Turkish enclave near Nicosia, Gönyeli. That would be a demonstration of
force, and there was hope that a diplomatic solution would be possible after that. If
not, the Turks would press on to secure the Northern part of Cyprus up until Famagusta.
The Turkish army was confident of success, since they considered themselves to be dominant
in the Mediterranean on sea and in the air. A naval armada of 5 destroyers and 31 landing
ships would carry the amphibious forces, while the Air Force would drop paratroopers and
supplies, and provide air support for the entire operation. Turkey deployed 40k men
and 180 tanks during the confrontation in Cyprus.
Greek Cypriots had the Aphrodite plan, which aimed to swiftly attack Turkish enclaves in
Cyprus as soon as information about Turkish invasion arrived, in an attempt to prevent
them from connecting with these enclaves. On the 20th of July 1974, the “Cakmak” Special
Strike Force Landing Brigade, one battalion of the 6th Amphibious Infantry Regiment, the
50th Infantry Regiment and one company of the 39th Divisional Tank Battalion (39th Infantry
Division), the whole force consisting of around 3,000 troops, and 12 M47 tanks, landed unopposed
in Pentemilli, a few miles from the main port of Kyrenia. Two Greek Cypriot motor torpedo
boats, the T-1 and T-3 attempted to make the landing more difficult for the Turks, but
were destroyed on the morning of the landing. The first land attack by Greek Cypriots was
made at 10 am by elements of the 251st infantry battalion, supported by 5 t-34 tanks. The
Turks managed to repel the attack, disable all 5 tanks and advance. An attack by elements
of the 281st, 316th and the 286th battalions, led by National Guard staff officer, Lt. Colonel
Boufas, initially forced the Turks to retreat, but eventually the Turkish 50th Infantry Regiment
was able regain the lost ground and force the Greeks to dig in.
Elsewhere, near Nicosia, by the Turkish enclave Gönyeli, the landing of Turkish paratroopers
was disastrous, with more than 90 of 120 men losing their lives. 550 men and 20 tanks of
ELDYK began the siege of Gönyeli, which was a strategic point on the Kyrenia-Nicosia road,
cutting the island from the North to the Center. Turkish Cypriots were prepared for the siege
and heavily fortified the area with defensive and anti-tank structures. They were able to
repel the initial Greek attack, and the following counterattack by the 399th battalion and inflicted
significant damage to the Greek Cypriots, with at least 4 of their tanks being destroyed
in the process. On the 20th of July the Greek Cypriot forces
attacked the Turkish Cypriot enclaves at Limassol, Paphos, and Agyrta-Nicosia, with different
levels of success. In Limasol and Paphos, the Turks were defeated and many were taken
as prisoners of war. On the same day, the United Nations Security
Council adopted resolution 353, demanding all foreign military personnel to leave Cyprus,
and calling Britain, Turkey and Greece to start negotiations to restore peace on the
island. On the 21st of July Turkish destroyer Kocatepe
was hit by friendly fire after deception by the Greek Cypriots, and sunk with all of its
53 person crew. The Greeks also suffered from friendly fire, as approximately 30 commandos
died when a Noratlas aircraft transporting them from Crete to Cyprus was hit by Greek
Cypriot anti-aircraft guns. The junta in Greece understood that local
Greek Cypriot forces were not strong enough to defeat the Turks. The 537th Infantry battalion,
a battalion of tanks and 500 Cypriot volunteers were sent as reinforcements.
In the morning of July 21st, all Turkish enclaves in Limassol and Larnaka were taken by the
Greeks. Thousands of Turks were taken as POWs. Other enclaves of Lefka, Denizli, Famagusta
and Limnitis were also under attack. On July 22nd the second wave of Turkish forces,
including a tank company and a mechanized infantry company, arrived in Cyprus. The Turks
attacked Kyrenia, which was defended by 33MK Commando, and 306th, 251st and 241st infantry
battalions. They were able to take the town after losing 5 tanks. The force which took
Kyrenia was able to establish a communication between Kyrenia and Gönyeli. This was an
important achievement, as firstly a Turkish enclave in Gönyeli was protected and secondly
controlling Kyrenia allowed Turkey to send more troops to Cyprus.
Greek defeats in the first days of the war lead to the collapse of the Junta regime in
Greece on the 23rd of July. Britain tried to restore peace by organizing negotiations
between Greece and Turkey on the 25th of July. The talks went on until August 14th and did
not achieve success. Turkey demanded the federalization of Cyprus,
allowing the transfer of populations. The new president of Cyprus, Clerides, asked for
2 days to make a decision, but Turkey demanded an immediate answer, and commenced its second
wave of offensives on August 14th – Atilla 2.
Two more infantry divisions were transferred to Cyprus. Greek Cypriots organized their
defense along the Troodos line, which left 40 percent of the island accessible to Turkish
troops. Its Western Sector started from the sea and went on until the Nicosia Airport
and was defended by the 11th Tactical Group. The central sector spread from Nicosia International
Airport and ended at the suburb of Nicosia, Mia Milia. It consisted of: the 212th reserve
battalion, ELDYK’s camp detachment (3 companies), the 336th reserve battalion (reinforced with
various companies, and with a total strength of 1,300 men), the 211th battalion and the
187th artillery battalion. The eastern flank consisted of the 12th Tactical
Group and the 9th Tactical Group, and expected the strongest Turkish attack. The total size
of the Greek forces numbered at around twenty thousand men, with 21 T-34 tanks.
Turkish forces consisted of 40k men – mainly in the 28th and 39th infantry divisions – one
armoured regiment (with one tank battalion and one mechanized infantry battalion from
the 5th armoured brigade), the Turkish Regiment on Cyprus (reinforced with one parachute battalion,
and one battalion from the 50th regiment), one Commando brigade, one Paratrooper brigade,
160–200 tanks, 200 APCs, and 120 field guns. Added to them were the remaining 5 Turkish-Cypriot
regiments (with 19 battalions). Turkey’s target was to connect with Turkish enclaves
in Famagusta and Limnitis. Atilla-2 started with the Turkish 39th division
attacking the Mia Milia defensive line, defended by the 399th battalion. The Turks were able
to push through, and together with the 241st battalion, the Greek Cypriots fell back to
Famagusta. In the Central Sector, the Turks were met with heavy resistance and their advance
was limited. On the 15th of August, only 341st battalion
with 3 t-34 tanks resisted the Turkish advance, while the rest of the 12th Tactical Group
retreated to Larnaca. By evening, Turkish forces entered Famagusta. The Turkish 28th
division advanced 6 km in the Western Sector on that day as well. On August 16th the Turks
reached Morfou and Limnitis. Thus, the aim of the Atilla-2 offensive was achieved.
Turkey’s campaign in Cyprus led to the occupation of 40% the island. The island was divided
by the so-called Green line. Greek refugees, amounting to 160k people, left for the Greek
controlled parts of Cyprus, while Turkish refugees moved to the part controlled by Turkey.
During the war, the Turks lost up to 3500 men, while Greek losses amounted to 6000 men.
Subsequently the Turks declared the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which is not
recognized by the international community. To this day, Cyprus remains divided despite
numerous attempts to reach an agreement. The videos in full 3d are extremely difficult,

    The British blocked self determination in Cyprus. The majority wanted union with Greece. But hey, their US overlords wanted airbases to launch attacks in the middle east so the British lapdog tortured Cypriots, killed some pregnant women, and then "granted" them independence while allowing their Turkish allies to conquer the North. This did not include the military bases, though. They kept those.

    First of all, Cyprus is not "divided". It's hypocrisy to use such a word. As the video speaks of Turkish invasion, the truth is that "Cyprus is invaded by Turkey". Division means "legal" partition, something like a civil war. Korea for example is divided, Cyprus is not.
    Secondly, if Cyprus is so important for Turkey as they declare, why did they just gave it up to England in 1878? I mean they didn't even sold the island, they litteraly exchanged it for some vague "protection" against Russian threat.
    Cyprus was not "divided" in the 1955-1960 revolution either. Greeks made up 80% of the population while Turks helped British Colonists trying to suppress the revolution. Is that a division? It's just a nation's war for independence. Fortunately, numbers can't lie.
    Turks of Cyprus commited uncountable war crimes along with the English in the period 1955-1960 torturing and murdering many Greek captives and civilians.

    Excellent video. I learned a lot from it. Sounds like the Turks were trying to be nice guys about it and the Greeks and Brits were being a-holes. I don't have a dog in the fight but, by the video, that's the way it sounds.
    World of tanks however, is not populated with tanks which accurately display their effectiveness in real world combat. 90 mph clown cars jumping off hills and making 90 degree turns at top speed without tipping or smashing their crews brains out is not realistic. Having 3 GPS satellite guided artillery for every 12 tanks is not realistic. Russian bias is not realistic in this game either. All that being said, it is a pretty fun game to play as an arcade game experience. That's about it.

    Tayyip Cumhurbaşkanı iken 'sivri' olması gerekçesiyle kendi partilisi ve kendi getirdiği Davutoğlu'nu koltuğundan etmiş, sözünden çıkmayan Binali'yi başbakan yapmıştır. Gel zaman git zaman, başkanlık sistemine geçecekken o emir eri Binali bile; "bu sistem (eski türkiye) kardeşi kardeşe düşürür" demiştir. Şimdi ise birinin Yunanlı ve diğerinin Türk olduğunu hayal edin!

    Batı'nın hep yaptığı bir şeydir. Afrika ve Ortadoğu Devletleri'nin sınırlarını belirlerken ne kadar birbiri ile kanlı bıçaklı halk var onları aynı devlet içinde çizmiş, ne kadar tartışmalı bölge var, onları da yönetilemez ve idare edilemez bir halde milletlerin önüne koymuştur.

    in this documentary he said 3500 Turkish soldiers died in the approx 8 day war get your facts right
    497 Turkish soldiers died he made it sound so dramatic nothing like that happened the Turks came there wasnt much fighting
    the most fighting happened in the mountains apart from that it was pretty much a walk over

    the division of Cyprus was a Turkish aim wich was succeeded by force and no solution will be accepted as long the Turks continue their presence on the island Turkey will never surrender what with blood have gained Therefore the only Solution for the Greek Cypriots is to get back by force what Turkey occupies and at some point Cyprus will find the opportunity to do so !!
