Road restoration continues in Syriac villages of Tur Abdin, Turkey

TUR ABDIN, Turkey — Restoration work has begun on roads in and around the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) villages of Tor Izlo (Mount Izla) in Tur Abdin, Turkey.

The roads are being paved with asphalt, according to Mayor of Arkah village Yusef Yar.

In comments to Suroyo TV, Yar stated that the authorities in the area began to restore the road linking the villages of Anhil and Badbbeh and passing through the villages of Kafro, Arkah, and Ihwo.

The road, in desperate need of restoration due to its unsafe condition, will be restored under the auspices of the Turkish Provincial Presidency and will be paved with asphalt again after years of damage and disrepair.

Yar thanked the concerned officials for issuing the decision to restore the 21-km road that links the villages of the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) people.
