Ahmet Akkuş / Mardin, Nov 20 () – In curfew-struck district of Nusaybin in southeastern province of Mardin, children hit streets to play games and recover the damages of the interrupted daily life in the region.
The district has been under curfew since Nov. 13, to ease security forces’ efforts to “fill in ditches and remove barricades in the streets. While electricity and water cut mark the violence-struck region, children play games with sounds of gunshots, clashes and blasts in the background.
A gunshot amid clashes have killed 19-year-old Musur Aslan, on Nov. 19. Two others have died during the escalating violence, as shrapnel pieces killed a woman called Selamet Yeşilmen and a man called Hasan Dal, who has died after a garden wall collapsed over him, hit by a rocket launcher.
Meanwhile, the Peoples’ Democratic Party Mardin MPs Mithat Sancar, Gülser Yıldırım, Ali Atalan and Erol Dora resume their hunger strike, declared yesterday, at a roadhouse in the district.
