    Between 1964 and 1993, approximately 30,000 Canadians served on the Mediterranean island, patrolling the Green Line, a narrow buffer zone separating combatants in the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities. In July 1974, at the height of the conflict, two Canadians were killed by gunfire and 17 others were wounded.
