To be dominated by great powers because of its geographic location and strategic position throughout history has become the fate of the island of Cyprus. The leasing of the island to the dominant force England in 1878, is a continuation of this process. This rental was enthusiastically welcomed by the Greek Cypriots and considered it an opportunity to achieve Enosis demands. Therefore, this situation prepared the ground for the events to be experienced between Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots. One of these events was the events of Limassol and Hamitköy between two sides in 1912. Firstly, it mentioned the Ottoman sovereignty in Cyprus, the lease of the island to England and the changing dynamics in this process in this study. This changing structure has led to the formation of two local actors in Cyprus. The Greek Cypriots, who were one of them, and the problems caused by the vociferous voices of their Enosis requests, and the effects of these problems on the other actor Turkish Cypriots. Eventually, bloody conflicts in 1912 especially Limassol and Hamtiköy regions were investigated because of the provocations of the Greek provocateurs. And also examined the attitude of the British colonial government against this situation
