Turkey's Secret Plan To Invade Greece And Armenia

Illustrative image

A plan for a simultaneous Turkish invasion of both Greece and Armenia was prepared by Turkey, according to the secret documents of the Turkish General Staff.

According to these documents, the plan called “CERBE” was prepared in 2014 and updated in 2016.

According to the Nordic Monitor, “Turkey was inspired by the name of its secret war plans for the eastern Mediterranean, from a significant victory Ottoman naval machine against a fleet of Christian alliance that strengthened Turkish rule in the Mediterranean.”

According to a PowerPoint presentation prepared by the General Staff for a review of interior design, Turkey has drawn up a plan for a secret military operation called “TSK [Turkish Armed Forces] Cerbe Operation Planning Directive”. The plan was dated January 7, 2014, which means that it was probably updated amid increased tension between Turkey and Greece / Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean, the report also states. Cerbe is the name of an island in southern Tunisia near the border with Libya.

It was there that the Battle of Djerba took place in May 1560 between the Ottoman forces and the fleet of the Christian Alliance, which consisted mainly of Spanish, Papal, Genoese, Maltese and Neapolitan forces.

“The Turks won the battle, which gave them dominance in the Mediterranean Sea,” the report said, adding that “the name of Turkey’s comprehensive war game plan in the eastern Mediterranean fits in with the narrative promoted by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan” and his associates, who often place Turkey’s problems with its Western allies as part of a renewed conflict between Christian Europe and Muslim Turkey. A slide from the powerpoint from the secret document lists the military plans of Turkey against Greece, Armenia and Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean with corresponding dates that show when they were drawn up “.

“The existence of Turkey’s war plan for the east was discovered in a court file in the Turkish capital, with prosecutor Serdar Coşkun, loyal to the Turkish president, apparently forgetting to remove the classified documents before submitting them to the court,” the statement said, which continues: “They were collected from the headquarters of the General Staff during an investigation into the failed coup on 15 July 2016. The documents, including the plan to invade Greece and Armenia, were found to have been sent among the top commanders to the General Staff through a secure internal email.

Koskun ordered the army to forward copies of all emails for the previous two months, including the encrypted ones, on August 1, 2016. Ten days later, on August 11, 2016, the prosecutor instructed his trusted assistant, a police officer named Yüksel Var, collect emails from the General Staff’s internal servers and report to him. A panel set up by military technicians under Var completed its work on 14 February 2017. Finally, the indictment filed by prosecutors Necip Cem İşçimen, Kemal Aksakal and İstiklal Akkaya in March 2017 at the 17th Supreme Criminal Court of the All of Ankara the e-mails collected from the computers of the General Staff “.

The Nordic Monitor concludes: “No communication was found in the e-mails indicating any  coup attempt, which many believe was a disorientation operation organized by Erdogan and his intelligence and military leaders to trap the opposition to persecution and mass purges.

The document does not contain details about the specifics of the program other than its name and updated date. The details of the war plan must have been labeled “confidential” and therefore could not be communicated through the intranet system running on the Turkish army’s email exchange servers. A review of the documents also shows that the General Staff, which notified the emails at the outset, panicked eight months later about the possible impact of the disclosure of sensitive documents and began sounding the alarm. The first warning letter was written on March 8, 2017 by the Chief of General Staff Unur Tarçın, Head of the Communication, Electronic and Information Services System of the General Staff (Muhabere, Elektronik ve Bilgi Sistemleri, or MEBS).

He warned the General Staff Legal Service that the documents contained secret documents related to Turkey’s national security, classified intelligence reports and operations in Syria and the eastern Mediterranean. He said the documents should be kept secret and not disclosed to unauthorized persons. The Deputy Chief Legal Adviser of the General Staff, Colonel Aydın Seviş, then wrote to the 17th Ankara High Criminal Court on 24 August 2017, reiterating the same concerns about the secret documents and urging the establishment of a committee to review them. However, the Turkish prosecutors did not seem to pay attention to their concerns and included all the emails with the attached secret documents in the case file, revealing the highly classified information including the name of the invasion plan for Greece”.

Turkish dreams again,
while Greece made a mistake by joining NATO, Armenia is in CSTO, which means it can’t be invaded because it has a nuclear superpower behind its back

Ullrich

True. Putin always is keeping his committments.

GoldStandard

Your sarcasm is self defeating. Because, actually, Putin most certainly did keep his commitments to the Syrian leadership, and basically saved Syria. ; )

jens holm

But Armenia was just invaded and none was nuked, wasnt they and we???

Is the mailman with newspapers delayed, where You are? Is anything else delayed ? I think so.

yuri

Jens Assholm

Readers in SF used to be more intelligent. What happened?
Any self respecting military has contingency plans to invade or defend against neighbors or other countries of interest based on location or importance. That is how the combat readiness is evaluated, equipment is purchased, drills are carried out.
Military can only be ready when it knows what it should be ready for.

yuri

but not you obviously…what happened–too much crack w Jens?
Vietnam was neither prepared to defend or attack and they destroyed USA, same w Korea and all wars—USA always defeated

putinisagaywhore

yuri…you damn gay retarded; go and spill your trash on your m@ther not on this site.

Turkish military can occupy Armenia, armenia military is powerless, but it cant occupy Greece.

Attila

How powerful is Greece ?and why should
we invadee Greece ?

mhtsaropinigitakhs

yes why should you invade Greece? it will be a suicide…i can understand why this plan exists…i bet Greece has also plan how to grab Constantinople…but its just plans

Attila

re yanni now you pushing your luck .you want to grab ISTANBUL not bad dream but you can try . this time you not gonna get help from British

Venizelosmegas

Istanbul is less than 100 year old name. Constantinople – like Jerusalem, Rome or Athens is centuries old -1800 or so years old city – that was the center of power for the longest lasting empire in history. The Christian Byzantium empire. Even the Turks knew of its significance and kept the name for some 500 years.

-Russia will obliterate turkis if they cross into Armenian territory

Simon Ndiritu

Turkish forces more or went toe-to- toe during Artsarhk war. It was reasonably tough for Turks and not a walk over, despite Armenian leadership Betraying Artsarhk. From this experience, Turkey CANNOT occupy Armenia especially when it has an active front on Mediterranean.

Mario8282

Such dreams can lead the dreamer to wake up dead.

GoldStandard

If directly attacked on own territory, Greece could legally invoke Charter 5 of the NATO alliance – and oblige the other members of NATO to attack the hostile invader – who would, of course, be their yet another NATO member – Turkey! NATO – with friends like that who needs enemies!

That’s crazy and cannot work

GoldStandard

All formal military alliances have fault lines – but having Turkey and Greece in same alliance when Turkey already invaded Greek territorial Cyprus in 1970’s and now occupies north Cyprus is a barely managed tinderbox. And that Turkey even has strategic documents for invasion of another alliance member! Under NATO rules if Turkey attacked Greece the rest of the combined NATO alliance would have to act to protect Greek sovereign interests from invasion – it likely would result in some kind of NATO emergency crisis intervention – but it would likely permanently fracture the alliance if not break it altogether.

Simon Ndiritu

That’s in theory. In practice, the US would like a Larger Turkey It can Use to intimidate others. So, we can expect the US to covertly support turkey while UK and France feigning outrage over Turkey. The UK would claim to have more military Bases in the remaining smaller Greece to prevent ‘further attacks’. Am not an expert though mine is just one possible scenario.

Attila

Northern Cyprus been liberated from terrorist Eoka bastardos.. South Cyprus will liberated too soon ……inshallah….

mhtsaropinigitakhs

Lol Ahmed you are pathetic liar

Lillie—when using too much crack you must stay hydrated otherwise you believe your delirious CNN induced delusions

Venizelosmegas

Remember ” Malta yok” . The Turkish navy could not even find Malta and was lost in the western Med. Thank God for GPS. Greeks have nithing to worry about. And Turks should also thank God that the French and Brits abandoned the Greeks after they took Constantinople and Smyrna last century and backed Ataturk- concerned that Greece was becoming too powerful.. Next time Turks may not be so lucky.

yuri

you cannot trust NATO; they permitted Turkey to occupy 1/3 Cyprus

Simon Ndiritu

This is a CIA plan as indicated by their earlier projection of how Turkish influence will spread from southern Russia,eastern Mediterranean, throughout central Asia and Arabian Peninsular. Russian S-400 and its inaction may also facilitate Turkey.
However, Turkey may fail to achieve this plan or ever collapse in the process as well armed players such as Greece and Syria can inflict fatal costs. Post-Pashinyan Armania can also hold back and drain Turkey long enough for other factors to come play. Some of us here that followed Artsarhk war last year may agree that Armenia lost due to treachery of Pashinyan as most of weapons and manpower at disposal were not used.

mehmet aslanak

There would be also plans in US & Russia to invade each other, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they would want or could invade each other. They are just contingency plans.

yuri

maybe not plans for invasion but awareness of military concentrations in case of conflict

All nations have some awareness of military targets in friendly and unfriendly nations—this is preparedness—if you want peace prepare for war
