The Cyprus-Israel War was the second major war of the Middle East and first major war for Cyprus. The Cypriot aim of the war was to gain resources, regions for citizens to run for congress in, as well as to be able to border one of their closest friends, Iran.
Though Cyprus was, at the time, Israel was a member of Luna, it did have positive relations with a number of nations in EDEN/Terra alliance. Conversely, Cyprus had very good relations with the USA and many ONE nations.
As a result, the war was a part of the many clashes between ONE forces and joint EDEN/Terra forces in what would be known as World War V. It would be the second conflict to have expanded into the Middle Easy, and together with the concurrent South African attack on Brazil, would finally bring the international war to every continent on the globe.
The war was started by a natural enemy proposal from a Cypriot congressmen. Israel thereafter responded with a natural enemy proposal of its own against Cyprus as it braced itself for an anticipated invasion. Military experts believed that Cyprus was to have a greater chance of taking Israel due to most of Cyprus' population being members of INCi, which is a group of over 1000 people who have a relatively good strength and rank points which would give them an advantige over Israel, as Israel only has about 1400 people and only one army.
By the time of the Cyprus-Israel War, some of ONE's principal countries were facing invasions in the Second Baltic War, USA-Spain War, Bulgarian Independence War, and the EDEN invasion of Serbia. ONE countries were therefore facing a number of issues, forced to slowly rebuild themselves, and not in a position of being able to assist their Cyprus ally to the degree that they may have had in the past when they were defending themselves from past invasion attempts by Greece and Turkey. Even though Cyprus has an MPP with the USA, a member of Terra as most of the INCi population live in the USA, Cyprus has an advantage over Israel as most citizens of ONE are trying to aid Cyprus whereas EDEN/Terra is quite busy with other things.
In addition, Cyprus had been (in the past) defending itself against a previous Greek and Turkish invasion for a few months prior to the war. Previously, Cyprus had been trying to take some of Greece's and Turkey's regions many times, but had been unsuccessful.
