We performed Friday prayer with our brothers in Cizre, Silopi, Silvan and Diyarbakır. First of all I would like to say ‘get well soon’ to my brothers in Diyarbakır. I wish may our Lord forbid our homes and cities from these evil acts. We observe the Holy Birth week. Thanks God, under the theme of ‘Belief in Allah and unity of the Almighty’, lets come together to exalt humanity and re-animate the humanity both in our country and in our heart lands. I am here to reiterate our beloved Prophet’s mercy message that He said 14 centuries ago.

And number of these sanctuaries is 89.  We have repaired 60 of them and opened for prayers. We have almost completed these reparations in Cizre, Silopi and Silvan.” At the end of his words Görmez said that 9 mosques are going to be re-constructed due to unrepairable damages. (ILKHA)
