The fire near the historic Elo Dîno Palace in the rural countryside of Şırnak is growing and no intervention is made to try and extinguish it.

The forest fire that is engulfing the historic Elo Dîno Palace, located near the village of Sulak (Bafê) in Idil in the province of Şırnak is growing.

Nothing has been done, said local sources, to try and extinguish the fire around the historic site, right next to the Tigris river.

Many trees have been turned into ashes after the fire started. Local sources said that the fire began after shots were heard.
