Turkey’s Pattern of Aggression

Beginning on July 20, 1974, Turkish troops, following a coup attempt, attacked Cyprus, effectively splitting the island in two and today occupying over one-third of sovereign Cypriot territory. In the process, more than 200,000 were displaced, about 5,000 killed and some 2,000 people remain missing to this day—including four American citizens.
