Turkish monuments wheeled out of town before flood ‘washes history away’

The Artuklu Hamam, a 540-year-old bathhouse, is removed before the construction of a new dam

Turkey has started moving historic buildings out of the southeastern town of Hasankeyf before a dam is completed that will leave the area 60 metres under water.

Shamefully Kurds are allowing this to take place

The 540-year-old Artuklu Hamam, a traditional Turkish bathhouse, is the latest building to be moved, on wheels and fully intact, to a new site two miles away. Draped in Turkish flags and guarded by heavily armed special forces soldiers, it joins the 15th century Zeynel Bey tomb, which was moved in May last year, in New Hasankeyf.

In all, six monuments will be moved to the new site before the waters of the Tigris submerge what is left of the old town. Hasankeyf’s 3,000 residents are also being moved to new apartment blocks.

Plunder in Hasankeyf continues

The Turkish state continues to plunder the 12,000-year historical city of Hasankeyf.

Yet another tomb of the historical site was dismantled and moved to another place.
Hasankeyf, which has a history going back 12 thousand years, will soon disappeared, flooded by the Ilisu Dam, one of the most controversial project in the area.

The important historical site has undergone heavy destruction, while some other historical artifacts are moved to new places.

The tomb in Imam Abdullah Zaviyesi site was moved to the new Arkeopark: 37 hydraulic jacks and an SPMT vehicle with 256 wheels made the work.

The operation of transfer was supervised by police and gendarmery. Murat Dağdeviren, Deputy Director General of the State Hydraulic Works (DSİ), gave the following details about the operation of transfer: "We will carry 5 more works in Hasankeyf, and we will continue the operations here."

He added that: "There is a Girls' Mosque, there is Süleyman Han Mosque , There is Koç Mosque, there is Al-Rızık Mosque, there is a middle gate, and here we will continue to carry on important architectural pieces, some of which will be preserved in place. We are working to protect the fillings we have made in Dicle Valley and at the same time to protect the caves, it continues in the same way. "

The Minaret and the outbuilding part of the Imam Abdullah Zaviyesi will be moved in the days ahead.

12th-century monastery moved from historical site in Northern Kurdistan

A small Islamic monastery, also known as zawiya, in Hasankeyf dating back to the 12th century was relocated Monday to a new site to prevent it from flooding when a new dam opens

A 256-wheeler flatbed truck moved the shrine part of the 850-ton ancient Artuqid-era religious school for one-and-a-half hours, to a cultural park in the district of Hasankeyf in the Batman province.

The first part of the zawiya was carried some 2.4 kilometers away from its original spot.

The relocation of the ancient structure followed the move of 540-year-old Zeynel Bey Shrine and a 13th-century Turkish bath, or hammam, in the same ancient district of Hasankeyf.

The minaret part of the zawiya is expected to be relocated during the week.

Speaking to reporters, Murat Dağdeviren, deputy director-general of State Hydraulic Works (DSI) termed the relocation of the zawiya "historic".

Dağdeviren said the relocation of the zawiya was more critical than the previous ones due to some asymmetrical features on the structure.

"We need to do more sensitive transportation," he added.

The zawiya was reconstructed to adapt to the Ayyubids era, while it was also restored in the Ottoman and Republic eras.

Hasankeyf, 32 kilometers (20 miles) southeast of the provincial capital Batman, was declared a conservation area in 1981.

As Hasankeyf has been declared a conservation area WHY is it not protected from the vile Turkish invaders

There are nearly 6,000 caves around the town that contain the remnants of Christian and Muslim worship, as well as a Byzantine fortress.
