HistoryEdit

The village used to be part of Assyria, in Ārosh Taxtayta (Lower Arosh) within the historical Assyrian district of Tyari and was populated by Assyrian people up until Seyfo in 1914.[2] The Assyrian village Ārosh Alayta (Upper Arosh), now named Yukariarus, in Hakkari, is less than 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) away, closely bordering the province of Sirnak. Halmon is around 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) to the northeast in Andaç and Gérāmon to the northwest, just right next to Halmon. Assyrian inhabitants of these proximate villages have ever since intermixed.[3]
