Once cleared, the land will be handed over to local farmers....
The project, prepared by the office of the governor of the Emergency Rule region, aims to clear a area of 36,000 hectares. Emergency Rule Governor Gökhan Aydıner said that the comprehensive project would cover five provinces, those of Hakkari, Şırnak, Şanlıurfa, Hatay and Kilis.
The first step in the project will involve a team of experts clearly defining the locations of the minefields, with some mines possibly having moved due to climatic conditions. After this process is completed, the clearing of the mines will commence.
When the project is completed, plots of the cleared land will be distributed to needy villagers for agricultural purposes, Aydıner said.
