The Invasion of Belize, also known as the Invado Kampanjo de Belizo was an invasion of Belize by Alconbria. The invasion began as a surprise attack on 4th February 2014, and ended 4 days later on 8th February after Alconbria annexed the entirety of Belize.
The invasion began on exactly 00:03 AM, when the Alconbrian Navy overran the Ambergis Cay. The city of Corozal was bombed by the Air Force, while the land forces invaded Belize through Belize City and Gales Point.
The highly trained Alconbrian army easily pushed through Belize without suffering from casualties, and an unprepared Belize had to rely from Mexican or English support. However, Belize did not receive support either from Mexico or from the United Kingdom.
The Alconbrian army captured entire Belize on 8th February, 2014, concluding after the surrender of the Belizean government. Belize then was ruled by a military administration, seeing violent purges, mass executions of civilians and martial law. The Alconbrian government took control of Belize on 14 February, 2014, creating the Territory of Belize.
The invasion led to the start of the War in Central America.
On 11 June 2013, the Valis Garantii released a dossier which carried information about Wouel Macarez's whereabouts in Orange Walk Town in Belize. The dossier also containe information of Guatemalan weapon transfers to the Free Alconbria Group, who were safely hiding in Belize. Soon after, Secretary of State Laurel Copete asked permission in the Léialegis to launch airstrikes against key FAG bases in Belize, but her motion wasn't passed, as both Voimer and Foreign Minister de Garcia voted against it. In September, Belize expressed its support for Morocco in the Five Months War.
On 10 December, 2013, Alconbrian Prime Minister Joseph Allende was denied entry into Belize to establish diplomatic relations. Foreign Minister Mateo de Garcia was similarly declined entry two days later.
Altiver declared Belize a sympathizer of the Free Alconbria Group. Soon after his speech, anti-Belizean sentiments in Alconbria reached an all-time high. Several Belizean people were imprisoned and moved to detention centres. Under the request of the Guatemalan government, the imprisoned Belizians were deported to Guatemala sometime during the period of 13-15 December.
The head of states of both Guatemala and Belize met a few days later and began the Gran Muralla large-scale military exercises, and both countries rapidly mobilized their troops, with Guatemala enforcing nation-wide mandatory conscription. Alconbria responded by moving five battle groups to the borders with Belize, and relocating nearly 300,000 people further east. Ferrinka Zavoyer, Governor of Norte Mutalio said to a group of relocated Alconbrians that they would receive land in Belize as compensation if the future invasion was a success. This alarmed everyone, and was seen as the first direct confirmation of an Alconbrian invasion of Belize.
Servando García Goyena, President of Altivebrio said that Alconbria would be attacked by Altivebrio if the former invades Belize. Immediately after Goyena's declaration, three Alconbrian jets were dispatched to fly over Belize. Upon discovery, Dean Walker, the Prime Minister of Belize requested the Guatemalan Air Force to shoot down the Alconbrian planes, but the Alconbrians returned back to Alconbrian airspace before the Guatemalan Air Force could be mobilized. Following this, the United Kingdom warned Alconbria against 'any unnecessary military action' over Belize.
Guatemalan intelligence officers warned Luigi Botin against any sort of war agaisnt Alconbria. Alconbria's VG intercepted three phone-calls and five letters between senior Guatemalan intelligence officers and politicians, and published them, mocking Guatemala in the process. In the 28th December session of the Guatemalan assembly, Botin vowed military action against Alconbria, but did not put in a vote.
Belize initiated Operation Axe on 31 December, 2013. It was a top-secret military operation which aimed to prevent Alconbria from attaining air superiority in case of a future war. It involved sending a company of 100 men to infiltrate the Ejergon Ilst airfield located 4 miles to south of the Alconbria-Belize border, and steal at least 10 jets and 15 helicopters, and destroy as much as possible using covert stealth tactics.
Over a 100 Belize special forces soldiers, dressed in Alconbrian clothes, sneaked across the border, and reached the airfield, but were however discovered by the Alconbrian Army after receiving significant intelligence from the VG. Commander Eloisa Flerans, who was the head of the airfield was immediately notified, and she wanted all 100 infiltrators to be captured alive, and wanted them to take them hostage and use them as a bargaining chip. Miraculously, all 100 infiltrators were captured alive by the Alconbrian Armed Forces, and were moved to an empty hangar in the airbase. Flerans contacted the War Kommand and informed them of the decision. Augustin Voimer praised her idea, and ordered the Kommand to follow it. On January 1, 2014; Voimer met the captured soldiers in the airbase with the War Kommand.
Heyn Winfelz, the Spokesperson of the Government of Alconbria placed the failed operation as an act of war, and promised Alconbrian retaliation. In the same speech, she threatened Belize to surrender nearly 10273 km2 of territory or Alconbria would execute the Belizean soldiers one by one. Belize rejected the offers, calling Alconbria 'a failure of humanity'. After the third soldiers was executed on 3 January, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mateo de Garcia announced that Alconbria would be invading Belize that day to thwart out terrorism.
