Examples of neighboring countries' involvement in domestic conflicts

I'm looking for historical cases in which a neighboring country has intervened militarily in a domestic conflict to support one side, ostensibly at its invitation.

Examples include the Soviet war in Afghanistan
, South African and Zimbabwean involvement in the Mozambican Civil War
and the Turkish Intervention in Cyprus
I know that there is a multitude of similar cases, but with my limited expertise I'm having difficulties picking them out from the sea of knowledge that is the history of armed conflits, not to mention selecting the most notable and representative ones.
