THE OLD TOWN OF DIYARBAKIR
Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality Department for Cultural Heritage and Tourism Report Date: October 7, 2016 The Fortress and inner city of Diyarbakır and the adjacent Hevsel Gardens Cultural Landscape have maintained the importance of the city for thousands of years because of its strategic location between East and West boundaries. The city has kept many different cultures and also “engraved” them into its fabric. The city, which has been the heart of many civilizations and states in time, had been the regional capital (center) of the empire in the periods of Persian, Roman, Sassanian, Byzantine and Islamic empires because of its geopolitical importance. On that sense, the city is a World Heritage Site with multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-layered structure. The religious architectural structures consisting of its original civil architecture, mosques, the churches and the public buildings such as inns and traditional baths are the cultural assets of the city which can be seen in the urban conservation area.
In Suriçi District, there are total 595 registered structures; 147 of them are the models of monumental, and 448 of them are models of civil architecture. Suriçi District was registered as “Diyarbakir Urban Conservation Area” in 1988. The “Diyarbakır Fortress and Hevsel Gardens Cultural Landscape” UNESCO World Heritage nomination studies have been gone on since January of 2012. At the same time, “Field Management Plan” was prepared with the relevant institutions, organizations, NGOs, scientists and the headmen of the city in observance of the principle of participation. “Diyarbakır Fortress and Hevsel Gardens Cultural Landscape” was registered as a World Heritage Site in 39th meeting of the World Heritage Committee in July 2015. In Suriçi District which is the buffer zone of “Diyarbakır Fortress and Hevsel Gardens Cultural Landscape” registered as World Heritage Site, Curfew had been declared in six neighborhoods of Suriçi District including Cevat Pa••a, Dabano••lu, Fatih Pa••a, Hasırlı, Cemal Yılmaz and Sava•• and they had been blockaded by the security forces between the dates of 06.09.2015- 13.09.2015, 10.10.2015 – 13.10.2015, 28.11.2015 – 29.11.2015, 02.12.2015 – 10.12.2015 and 11.12.2015. The recently declared curfew and blockade have still continued in five neighborhoods. In the meantime, curfew had been declared in the neighborhoods of Ziya Gökalp, Süleyman Nazif, Abdaldede, Lalebey and Alipa••a neighborhoods in Sur district of Suriçi Region between the dates of 27.01.2016 – 03.02.2016. On March 10, 2016, it was announced by the Governorship of the city that the operations had been completed. Nevertheless, the demolition and excavation works had been initiated by the heavy machineries of the state institutions and the excavations had been thrown into a field in the University area before the operations were completed. That case was under report by the Environmental Protection Department of our municipality 29.02.2016 (Annex 1). The demolition and excavation works were initiated in the area being Urban Conservation Area and World Heritage Buffer Zone without any assessment and without the required approval by Cultural Heritage Protection Board. The necessary permissions for the removal of the excavation were taken about a month later. It was declared in the decision dated 23.03.2016 and numbered 3873 of Regional Conservation Council of Cultural Heritage that it has been decided the debris of the structure wreckages on the closed road will be removed under the supervision of the museum director experts, and in case of occurrence of the debris belonging to the partially or completely destroyed registered structures, the qualified structural elements of these structures should be maintained in an appropriate manner in the relevant area under the supervision of the museum directorate experts in order to be evaluated afterwards (Annex-1). With this decision, the removal of wreckages is allowed only on closed roads; however it was determined by the images taken by a citizen from plane on 04.04.2016 and by the satellite images dated 05/10/2016 taken by the Diyarbakır Metropolitan Municipality that the decision is not fulfilled under no circumstance, hundreds of buildings were destroyed, schools were converted into police stations, and the roads were widened in order to facilitate transport between the police stations. While applying these kinds of implementations against to the Reconstructive Plan for Protection and Field Management Plan, Field Management Department was not informed and their permission was not taken. Suriçi Region is protected by international laws because of being an urban site and the buffer zone of Cultural Heritage Protection Law numbered 2863 and World Heritage Site. These are necessary in the destruction of mentioned registered structures; • To take decision for the destruction danger separately for each structure from Regional Conservation Council, • To set technical report for each structure to the destruction in the area by the technical staff of Construction Control Branch Manager of Municipality in accordance with the Article 39 of zoning Law No. 3194 related to the structures that are dangerous to the life and property safety, • To take Council decision by the relevant municipality after the documentation for the danger of destruction. However, as indicated above, the works had not been carried out by Conservation Council and the relevant municipality, and also the necessary permits had not been taken for the registered structures which were demolished in the prohibited neighborhoods. As of this day, the works and processes causing damage of the area and being contrary to national and international legislation are still going on. The qualified structural elements of the building were thrown out of the Sur region by those who are not expertise on the subject without drawing the construction, restoration and restitution projects for the registered structures. C:\Users\belgelerim\Desktop\haslr.jpg C:\Users\belgelerim\Desktop\haslr.jpg This situation can be clearly seen from the photographs. As seen in the satellite photo below, registered Hasırlı Mosque was completely destroyed and its excavations have been thrown from its own place. In addition, the bell tower, south courtyard wall, main entrance door, the courtyard located in west of the church and the church outbuilding of Armenian Catholic Church, another important registered structure are completely destroyed and also a wide road has been opened in this area as seen in the following photo.

However, it is not permitted on the grounds that the place is not safe at each time (Annex 3). Yet, there have not been any conflict and security problems in the area after the completion of the operation was officially announced on March 10, 2016. After the specified date, the prime minister and ministers have visited the Walled City, and they have even held a public demonstration. All of these high-level visits show that there is no security problem in Suriçi. According to the Governorship’s statement, 3000 of the people living within Suriçi have been allowed to enter in the area and take their household goods. After completion of the operations, the staffs of Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and Culture and Tourism Ministry have begun to work in the field. Many staff of the relevant ministries has carried out their activities in the area for the demolition and excavation works. Police stations were built in School gardens and watchtowers were built on the lowest parts of city walls, and dozens of workers were employed in these constructions. That’s, anybody allowed by the government and the governorship can go in and out the area where military blockade continues; they can also carry out their works and all these in and out show that there is no security problem in the field.

The State Party should do its utmost by the using the resources all the way and by providing all kinds of international assistance and cooperation in the particularly financial, artistic, scientific and technical fields. But, after the armed clashes the State Party has demolished numerous structures, destroyed the historical and cultural fabric of the affected areas, removed the excavations with construction equipment and done no damage assessments ostensibly due to the safety situation. C:\Users\belgelerim\Desktop\agustos_surici\a••ustos_uydu.jpg 2016-AUGUST AIRPHOTO In addition, it is possible to obtain data in order to carry out the post-conflict assessment without being entered the field by the experts. The size of the damage in the field and structures could be detected by using the laser scanning method with video capture by the equipment such as Drone and unmanned aerial vehicles and by taking satellite photos of the area. Thus, it would be possible to obtain reliable information on structures without taking the original structural elements of the registered structures out. In this way, it could be determined whether some structures could be conserved without being completely collapsed. While the necessary conservation interventions can be made to these structures without their traces completely being erased, it was observed that the registered and non-registered structures have been destroyed by using shovels and construction equipment; roads unsuitable for Reconstruction Plan for Protection have been opened; the existing streets have been widened; and the original tissue of the city have been damaged in the urban conservation area. It has been observed irreversible damage has been occurred in the original tissue of the street in Suriçi, on the registered and monumental structures and the city’s original tissue due to the excavation done by wiping the traces of structure. It is necessary to stop these unlawful implementations, and to apply the legal procedure related to registered and non-registered structures. In order not to lose the element and tissue material that can lead tissue loss in the demolition resulting due to the destruction, damage assessment and excavation are required; the excavation should be carried out to ensure the preservation of original construction elements in their place. Data for population and severely damaged registered and non-registered structures, households, workplaces destroyed in the urban conservation area after this heavy conflictive process is given in the table below. Maps and other data reveal the severe damage. The total area of Suriçi is 148 hectares; the total area of the prohibited 6 districts is 75 hectares. It has been detected via satellite that 10 hectares have been destroyed. The number of parcels in the old city, Suriçi, is 7714. 3646 of them are situated in the six neighborhoods affected heavily by the curfew. The parcels affected by the destruction after the end of the armed conflict, including the situation of the registered and non-registered buildings, have been documented based by superposition of the satellite air photo with the cadastral maps. ASSESSMENTS DONE BASED ON THE AIRPHOTO FROM MAY 10, 2016 C:\Users\belgelerim\Desktop\Ekran Alıntısı.PNG 2016-MAY AIRPHOTO A total of 49 registered civil structures have been completely and 22 of them have been partially destroyed, 30 civil structures were heavily damaged in neighborhoods experiencing conflict.

By this decision, 82% of the parcels in Suriçi will have expropriated. A large part of the remaining 18% is in the possession of Housing Development Administration and Internal Revenue. As a consequence of this case, Suriçi will be entirely passed into public ownership. CONCLUSION Suriçi where life has continued without interruption so far is also one of the important commercial areas of the city. The area where traditional products brought from rural areas are sold is also the center of handicrafts production such as jewelry, coppersmith, forging and silk weaving. Suriçi, in which the unique and private life ensures continuity, is the collective memory of Diyarbakır. After the negativities experienced in the 1990s, the interest and desire for the protection of cultural assets has increased in Suriçi and it has reactivated the socio- economic and cultural life since the beginning of 2000s thanks to the restoration and functionalization works conducted by municipalities, public institutions, NGOs, and private entrepreneurs. The awareness for preserving historical city has increased more, and projects have been developed concordantly with its registration as the UNESCO World Heritage in 2015. However, it has been seen that the original street tissue of Suriçi being “Urban Site” and city block- parcel integrity have lost irreversibly because of the activities for wiping the structure traces after the conflict process. Furthermore, these will be inevitable to wipe the collective memory of the city formed by the accumulation of thousands of years with the forced migration of the people living here and the expropriation decision taken after the conflict process; and to change in the demographic structure and interrupt the cultural continuity with the exchanging the ownership. Freeholders in Suriçi District will be forced to sell their properties through expropriation threats by violating their property rights and their choice rights for places to be resided in. Damage assessment related to the registered structures substantially damaged as a result of conflict in Suriçi needs to be conducted by a team consisting of the city’s dynamics, scientists, field management department and municipal experts in the process of improving the historical urban fabric. Demolition and excavation removal must be stopped immediately. It needs to decide the damage according to the assessment for the structures and street tissue; and associate together. And also it needs to conduct the plans without eliminating the people who will live there. The plans must be people-oriented by increasing the presence of cultural accumulation carrier for thousands of years and the living standards. And, of course, it must be performed by protecting the delicate tissue of the city in the most sensitive way.
