Operation Turkish Delight was a military operation by the United States of America and resistance forces from Greece and Israel, started on June 11, 2009. Also known by names such as Mighty Aphrodite, Herculese, Fig Leaf, and Divine Justice among various members of the US military. It was composed of a series of seven resistance wars in parts of Israel and Greece occupied by Turkey.

History

Greece had been entirely conquered by Turkey during the Balkan Wars, only regaining the region of Thrace during the Greek Independence War. Israel had been similarly conquered during the Turkey-Israel War, three of five regions during the Israeli Independence War.

In an effort to weaken Turkey, and by extension, the PEACE GC, the United States began preparations for an undisclosed military operation. Initial mobilisation orders were sent on June 10 to all mobile divisions of the US military. The next day, troops were ordered to move to Turkey to back resistance wars, many of which were started by US military personnel. Soldiers were instructed to conceal their identities by all possible means. Troops worked in Turkish weapon companies between fighting and healing, or in US-owned companies, in an effort to sabotage the local economy. Roughly a dozen US-written/approved articles were voted up during that time period, flooding the Turkish media.

Turkey was taken by surprise, and needed several days to arrange a strong defence and receive help from other PEACE nations. Aware that the battles would become more difficult as the war continued, the US began employing diversions. A resistance war earlier in the day occupied the defenders' attention, allowing US victory in regions deemed more important. This was the case with battles in Crete and the Peloponnese.

Over the last few days, Turkey had negotiated with Hungary. On June 15, the two nations signed a peace treaty, ending an inactive war and allowing Hungary to send a large force to help. These troops played a major role in the battle for Tel Aviv Center District, the Israeli capital, and Central Greece, a high iron region. The USA barely kept the region unsecured as the battle neared the 24-hour mark, but later poured in additional resources and freed the region.
