The 15th century Zeynel Bey tomb is seen in its new location in Hasankeyf, Turkey August 12, 2018. The Ilisu dam, which Turkey planned to fill this year, will generate 1,200 megawatts of electricity but has been criticized for water shortages it will create downstream in Iraq and for the tens of thousands of people it will displace in Turkey.

For hundreds of residents of the 12,000-year-old town of Hasankeyf and its neighboring village of Kesmekopru, both of which will be submerged, housing laws may also block them from finding new homes on the nearby mountainside.

Fatime Salkan and her brother Hizrullah Salkan sit at Fatime's house in Hasankeyf, Turkey August 11, 2018. Two Hasankeyf residents affected by the laws, siblings Fatime and Hizrullah Salkan, have filed legal petitions to find new homes when the waters rise and they are forced from their houses - built next door to each other by their parents. Fatime, 44, is not married and her 47-year-old brother, a father of four, switched his address to a neighboring province while seeking work there five years ago, meaning they both fail to meet requirements for being rehoused. "They told us everything would be perfect - that everyone would own a house, there wouldn t be any problems," Hizrullah said. "But now we are doomed to be migrants."

Mazlum Cetin sits on the roof of the apartment building where he lives with his family in new Hasankeyf, August 11, 2018. Cetin, 27, works as a local tour guide in Hasankeyf but moved to the new settlement site in April. He fears the local economy will worsen after the dam because tourists will not be as eager to see Hasankeyf's artefacts away from their historical location.

A general view of the new town of Hasankeyf, September 27, 2017. For the approximately 20 families who have already moved from Hasankeyf to the new homes, however, their present living conditions do not resemble a city. Although authorities have said construction is 94 percent complete, the streets are still full of construction vehicles, the tap water is brownish, the air swirls with dust, and the area is barren. A clump of pine trees planted on a ridge above the site are brown and dead.
