History of Midyat
The name Midyat probably derives from Matiate which was a 9th century BC cavern city in nearby Eleth, 3km away, where the earliest inhabitants lived. Midyat’s name appeared on Assyrian tablets with an inscription of the Neo-Assyrian king, Ashur-nasir-pal II (883-859 BC), and the text depicted how Assyrian forces conquered the Armenian city and its surrounding villages.
The town suffered many invasions from Mongol and Turkish tribes which severely decimated the population and the Assyrian Genocide of World War I wiped out large numbers of ethnic Syriac Christians in Turkey .
