The earthquake that caused a big damage in South Eastern Turkiye also damaged the historical fortress of Gaziantep province. This fortress is also a symbol of the city. Its history is unknown but it is guessed that it goes back to Hittites in order to dominate the region.
After this earthquake, the fortress had a big damage as you can see above. All city walls of the fortress fell down. The historical structures of the fortress were also damaged. Its richter scales are so big that the fortress shared the same destiny with the city.
History is also mourning in Turkiye…..
