Cypriots woke up to the sound of sirens marking the 45th anniversary since the Turkish invasion

 Cypriots woke up today, once more, to the sound of sirens to remind everybody, lest we forget, of that fateful Saturday morning of July 20th, 1974. Today, Saturday, July 20th 2019 marks 45 years since Turkish troops invaded and occupied Cyprus’ northern part.

This East Mediterranean island remains to this day divided, by virtue of the massive presence of Turkey’s military and Ankara’s stronghold on the Turkish Cypriots.
