SİİRT - Works are being carried out for the evacuation of 199 settlements that will be left under water in the Tigris Valley due to the Ilisu Dam.
While the 12-year-old Hasankeyf and the Tigris Valley are being subjected to submersion due to the construction of the Ilısu Dam, water retention was postponed despite the announcment that it would be done on June 10. Although the date of water retention in the Ilisu Dam is not clear, the villages in the Tigris Valley are requested to be evacuated.
According to the local resources, a committee coming from the Siirt muftiate tells the citizens 'The dam can be filled at any time from now on, be ready to evacuate'.
According to a citizen called Tekin Aktaş, the housing project the villagers are promised is not done yet, and the villagers are forced to evacuate anyway.
