Turkey has committed genocide in North Cyprus. Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group. While precise definition varies among genocide scholars, a legal definition is found in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the... Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide(CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. All these acts have been committed by Turkey in Cyprus.
Immortalized in a 1974 photo taken during the illegal Turkish invasion of Cyprus, has been the same as thousands of other missing Cypriots. An entire generation has grown up wondering, as has their relatives, what happen to these young men after they surrendered to Turkish forces? What type of horrors awaited them after this photo was taken? At last that question has finally been answered, as officials with the United Nations led Committee on Missing Persons announced today, that the five soldiers as well as 14 others Cypriots were found in an abandoned well near the village of Tziaos, inside Occupied Cyprus. The bodies had been exhumed sometime in 2006, and have finally been identified.
This recent news story only adds validity to Cypriot claims that myriad war crimes had been committed during the illegal Turkish invasion, which Turks continue to claim was apeace operation! Who knew cold-blooded murder was acceptable practice in a peace operation? As long as the murderers of innocent Cypriots are allowed to cling to the belief that their puppet pseudostate has the authority to negotiate with the true legitimate government of Cyprus, peace and justice will never come to the birthplace of Aphrodite.
A plethora of archaeological and religious sites in North Cyprus have been robbed or damaged by Turcoterrorists and they are still in peril. 800 Orthodox churches and chapels have been pillaged, vandalized, or demolished; 200 churches, chapels, and monasteries have been desecrated; the whereabouts of 30,000 paintings are unknown; 100 churches have been converted into mosques, 50 are being used by the Turkish military forces as hospitals, brothels, or camps; and 60 are used as agricultural barns and public toilets. The best hope for the remnants of Cyprus's fractured religious heritage is the reunification of the island and the end of military occupation. In the meantime, Cyprus will keep mounting pressure on genocidal Turkey to acknowledge cultural destruction and will keep pursuing the repatriation of lost art items, such as mosaics, frescoes, and icons, through courts foreign, international, and regional.
All civilized people are hostages of Turcoterrorist freaks. To know how heroic Cyprus was betrayed by Turcophiles, and to have studied the record of that inhuman betrayal, is to make oneself unhappy and to spoil, perhaps for ever, one's pleasure for visiting one of the world's most enchanting islands. Nothing will ever restore the looted treasures, the bereaved families, the thousands murdered in cold blood, the thousands raped, the plundered villages, the groves and hillsides scalded with napalm by mother****er Turcoterrorists. Nor will anything mitigate the record of the callous, and crude kleptocrats who regarded Cyprus as something on which to scribble their inane and conceited designs. Turkey must be ostracized from humanity. Mother****er Turcoterrorists are the ****scum of Earth!
The commander of the infamous Diyarbakir Prison of Turkey, boasted to the inmates of the 35th prison ward that he murdered many Cypriots in cold blood and raped many Cypriot women. He introduced himself as follows: Listen to me! I have been appointed here upon the direct orders of the Office of the Chief of the General Staff. My name is Esat Oktay Yildiran. I am the man who in Cyprus chopped off the head of a Greek Cypriot child in front of his father's eyes and drank his blood as wine. I got the highest medal of the Turkish Republic for that! Most of my medals come from chopping off Cypriot heads. It's a piece of cake! So watch out, because if you do not behave, I will chop off your heads too!
Gray Wolves is the paramilitary terrorist organization of genocidal Turkey that carries out all secret terrorist acts of the Turkish government. They are named after Asena, a legendary ancient female wolf that led captive Turks to freedom. Their dream is to create Turan, the Great Turkish Empire, including all Turkic peoples mainly in the Central Asian countries a well as the Caucasus and the Uygurs' homeland of East Turkestan in the Xinjiang province of Northwestern China.
Gray Wolves are responsible for thousands of political assassinations and disappearances and have ties with the Turkish mafia, the Turkish government, the Turkish military, the Turkish intelligence services, and the Turkish Treasury. The 1981 attempt on Pope John Paul II's life was carried out by Gray Wolf Mehmet Ali Agca. Gray Wolves were involved in myriad attacks on Cypriots, destroying their properties and murdering thousands in cold blood. They have also caused myriad fires in EU forests
THE CASE OF THE MASSING GARAVE IN TZIAOUS(TZIAOS)
Now we know what happened to the five National Guardsmen taken prisoner by the Turks in August 1974, the moment of whose capture became one of the most shocking images of the Turkish invasion, representing the drama and fate of the 1,619 missing Greeks. The five were executed and thrown down a well in the Turkish Cypriot village of Tziaous in the occupied Mesaoria region. The well was excavated earlier this year in total, the remains of 19 Greek Cypriots were found in it and this week the five National Guardsmen were identified. They were 1. Antonakis Korellis, aged 30, from Kythrea; 2. Panicos Nikolaou, aged 26, from Achna; 3. Christoforos Skordis, aged 25, from Dhali; 4. Ioannis Papayiannis, aged 23, from Neo Horio, Kythrea; and 5. Ioannis Hatzikyriakos, aged 19, from Ammochostos.
The remains of the other 14 Greek Cypriots found in the well have yet to be identified.
The five soldiers were from 398 Infantry Battalion and were captured by the Turkish army at the start of the second phase of the Turkish invasion (14 August 1974) near the Turkish Cypriot village of Tziaous as the Turks advanced through the Mesaoria towards Ammochostos. According to the Cypriot daily Phileleftheros (see here and here), the Turkish army, in a hurry to get to Ammochostos, didn't want to take prisoners with it and left the five in the custody of Turkish Cypriots, who executed them and threw them down a well, next to the village mosque.
In another photograph from the scene of the capture, a Turkish soldier offers and lights a cigarette for one of the five prisoners, Ioannis Papayiannis.
Ioannis Papayiannis, according to his sister, had just finished his studies in England and was on his way back to Cyprus, via Greece, when the coup against President Makarios took place. Maria Papayiannis recalls that after the first Turkish landing, her brother volunteered and joined up with the 398 Infantry Battalion. Between the first (20 July) and second (14 August) invasions, she says, her brother returned to their home village of Neo Horio, Kythrea, twice, to take a bath, before hurriedly returning to his unit to defend his country and meet his brutal death.
The photographs documenting the capture of the five National Guardsmen were taken by a Turkish journalist embedded with the advancing Turkish army. He was eventually arrested by Greek Cypriots in Nicosia and his material confiscated.
