occupied village of Kyrenia district in CYPRUS since 1974 by barbarian Turkish
The page is dedicated to all people who were killed, or are still
missing due to the Turkish invasion, and it is a promise to
them that we will return!
We promise that we will keep their memory and the memory of Myrtou Saint
Panteleimon alive, and that our thoughts and concerns are towards freeing our ancestors
Ayios (Saint) Panteleimon, celebrates on
Myrtou village, has been captured
by the Turkish army after Turkey attacked CYPRUS August 15, 1974. All Greek
Cypriots inhabitants were forced out by Turkish military forces and are now
refugees in their own country.

"No one can rest, no one's conscious
can be clean, until the hour comes when all refugees return to the ancient Greek
land of Kyrenia. Kyrenia is the land where we belong, is the land of our ancient
history, it is where our identity exists".
Unless there is a just solution to the Cyprus problem
that will guarantee our return to Myrtou, our village, we will always
struggle for return. With the help of God, and Saint Panteleimon, our village's
protector and founder, one day we will return back to a FREE Myrtou,
and a FREE CYPRUS.
The Turkish army has forced us out from our homes with the
use of brutal military power.
The Turkish army has forced us out and away from our land and made us refugees
in our own country.
Turkish Cypriots and Turks are now living in our houses.
People from Myrtou were never a threat to nobody.
We used to live in Myrtou with Turkish Cypriots from Kampili in peace until 1974.
The Turkish army invaded Cyprus and forced us out and denies access to our
beloved village since then.

We mourn, but then our mourning became anger. We never
forget our land, our history and our identity. We never forget, and we will
always have in our hearts, and in our thoughts the terrible injustice done to us
by the Turkish army. We want Turkish opressors to know that we will never accept
a solution that will not guarantee our return to Myrtou, Saint Panteleimon.
