When we reached the area of Bitlis, at the beginning of the summer, we found out that the commander of Garzan province had made a new arrangement for us. The body of our force, who had arrived safely, were now to be distributed into four different regions. My group was to be sent to the Şirvan district of Siirt. Our new task area was enormous, and our area of responsibility would include the central province of Bitlis, the city of Siirt, the region of Şirvan, Baykan district of Siirt, and the city of Bitlis. Our entire force would be only two platoons of 49 men and eight women in total.
