Following the devastating fire between Amed and Mardin, Heyva Sor a Kurdistanê calls for financial aid from the Kurdish people and their friends, especially those living in Europe.

A field fire started last night in a rural area between Amed's (Diyarbakır) Çınar (Xana Axpar) district and Mardin’s Mazıdağı (Şemrex) district, spreading quickly to residential areas. According to latest reports, at least 5 people lost their lives and 44 others were injured, 10 of them seriously.

The fire, which affected an area of tens of kilometres and destroyed agricultural lands, caused heavy material damage as well as loss of life. Countless animals belonging to villagers were also trapped in the flames and died.
