The fire is approaching the settlements, but the necessary measures have been taken, there is no negative situation at the moment, "he said.
A message of unity in the fight against fire from the President Gurun
Stating that 3 thousand 417 hectares of land have been damaged so far in Marmaris, where the fire continues its effect and the extinguishing works continue without slowing down, Mayor Gurun stated that during the fire, each institution should do its own duty and do its part. President Gurun said, “We are going through a war with fire with all our might. No institution should be separate or against each other. All our institutions urgently need to complete the deficiencies that can be completed. The words we say, finding each other lacking, are of no use in extinguishing the fires. We need common sense to put out the fire. We should make our constructive criticism after the fires are over. We need to stop blaming each other,” he concluded.
