Fire on Mount Cudi in Şırnak countryside

The cause of the fire is yet not clear.

Fire erupted in the forested land on Mount Cudi across Şırnak city centre. The growing fire is visible from far away and there is no intervention or effort to extinguish it.

Some sources in the region state that the fire started because of the military operation of the Turkish forces while some others cite picnickers as the cause of the flames.
