The Occupation of Iziz, also called the Mandalorian Occupation of Iziz and Mandalorian Invasion of Iziz and the Two-Day War, was a minor yet devastating conflict that took place on Onderon at the planets' capital of Iziz. Onderon Republic forces surrendered within 48 hours. This is one of the short wars that would lead to the devastating Galaxy-wide conflict, Galactic War II.
The invasion began early in the morning. Onderon forces quickly ushered in most of their military once Mandalorian forces were spotted. Even though the Onderonian forces had extensive numbers, they were quickly outnumbered by the Mandalorians. Within 24 hours, the Onderon forces were drastically weakened. They decided to bring in heavy artillery, but were no match for the Mandalorians' Neo Basilisk War machine. Within another 24 hours, the Onderonian forces surrendered.
Iziz was nearly destroyed in the battle. Upon losing the capital, the Onderon Republic's political strength was drastically damaged. Any of the cities un-evacuated citizens were enslaved or imprisoned. This was considered the shortest, yet devastating conflict Onderon had ever experienced.
