How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

Massacres before the "Second operation" in 1974 ?

Postby Alectryon » Fri Apr 03, 2015 11:45 am

MrH wrote:I was there on the day of 20th July 1974 and remember how angry the Turkish soldiers were when they found our Dead civilians buried alive - in village after village. This prompted the Second operation, and its eventual change of plan from restoring the Cyprus constitution to saving our people from the AKRITAS Plan. Turkish soldiers may have killed Greek soldiers, but not its women and children from 1963.

Read the "Genicide Files" by Harry Scott Gibbons:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1151472.The_Genocide_Files
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Genocide-Files-Harry-Scott-Gibbons/dp/0951446428

and the AKRITAS Plan by the Greek Cypriot regime that is coincidentally now in Power!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akritas_plan


Can MrH or someone else give me details of the villages that were attacked before the "Second operation".

I don't have access to the book written by Gibbons and I'm not having much luck searching this forum and internet.

This Wikipedia article only lists the Alaminos massacre (20th July). The other massacres occur after the "Second operation".

21 July 1974: Greek Cypriots raid the village of Gaziveren in Nicosia and indiscriminately open fire on to each Turk they gun on their way. Result: six are killed, of whom four are women and 22 injured.

21 July 1974: 26 unarmed Turks in Limassol are killed. 1800 people are taken as hostages.

23 July 1974: At Angolem in Nicosia Greek Cypriots first torture eight Turks, including women, children and elderly, and then are killed by shooting them through the head.

13 August 1974: At Kithasi village in Paphos, an old couple was killed with an axe.

In which villages did Turkish troops discover buried civilians before the "Second Operation" ? Alaminos ? Gaziveren ? Limassol ? Angolem ? Kithasi ?

By the time the UN Security Council was able to obtain a ceasefire on 22 July the Turkish forces were in command of a narrow path between Kyrenia and Nicosia, 3% of the territory of Cyprus,[77] which they succeeded in widening, violating the ceasefire demanded in Resolution 353.[78][79][80]

In which villages located in this 3% occupation zone did Turkish troops discover buried civilians ?

how do you expect to find out who was killed before the second operation. tcs were scattered all over cyprus during the first and second operations. who can say that they were not killed even before the first operation. people near magusa and limasol were attacked and killed. the people in magusa were also burned. who can say whether they were burned alive or not.

...burned alive, only the British come to mind, burning people alive in Cyprus.

The fact remains that this is a very good question, what happened in that 3% of occupied land in Cyprus, before the "Second operation"?

MrH was in Cyprus in July 1974 and came across Turkish soldiers who discovered mass graves of TC civilians before the second operation. I expect the Turkish side to tell us the names of the villages where these graves were found. What do your history books and July 1974 newspapers say ?

In July 1974, the Turkish army was in control of 3% of Cyprus as shown in that picture. Obviously those villages must be located in that occupied area.

Does anybody have this book by Gibbons ? What massacres of TCs, committed before the 14th August 1974, does the book discuss ?

Turkey proceeded to ethnically cleanse entire towns and villages without a single Turkish Cypriot inhabitant with mass killings,mass rape and napalm bombs on civilians.
