    The village Kellef

    Between Mardin and Midyat, near Savur, is the village Kellef. Kellef used to be a village with about a thousand inhabitants and a few shops and cafes. Now it is quite deserted with just a few families living there, while others are living in other countries. You can see on several houses that they have been abundant for years. Many people who moved from Kellef are Syrian orthodox Christians and Arabic speaking.
