Turkish Invasion in Cyprus (1974)

Today is the 37th anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. More than 6,000 Greek-Cypriots were killed, thousands more wounded ... and 1,300 men, 116 women and 133 children taken captive by the Turks to be murdered or sent to concentration camps. Nearly 200,000 Greeks were forced from their homes by the Turkish army, which still occupies Cyprus today. We will never forget!
