Cyprus is divided into a Greek (south) and Turkish (north) part. The Greek part of Cyprus and Israel have discovered natural gas under the Mediterranean Sea. They now have signed contracts to exploit these gas fields. Erdogan is jealous of these new found treasures. Turkey now claims it can drill for gas or oil anywhere in the waters surrounding Cyprus and is sending warships to the region to enforce this.
Erdogan dreams of a revived Ottoman Empire. Greece used to be a part of that empire. So this conflict is a must watch. Will the riches of Israel be the hook in the jaw of Gog of Magog to attack Israel? Will the enormous gas fields they found be the reason to attack?
