New Park in Southeast Turkey To Be Built Atop an Armenian & Syriac Cemeteries.

A plot of land in Turkey’s southeastern Mardin province containing Assyrian and Armenian graves has been transformed into a park.

A “Nation’s Garden” that consists of a park and a wedding salon has been built in Dargeçit, Mardin.

The “Saray Neighborhood Recreation Project” was launched in March 2016 by the trustee whom the Ministry of Interior appointed in place of the elected mayor. The tender price for the project was 1,270,000 liras (~220 thousand US dollars).

The “Nation’s Gardens” are recreational facilities that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) promised to build all around the country before the 2018 presidential elections.

The locals say the project area, where they call “Tirbik” includes Armenian and Syriac cemeteries.

Federation of the Syriac Associations (SÜDEF) Chairperson Evgil Türker, Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) MPs Tuma Çelik and Garo Paylan have spoken about the issue.
