Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mustafa Palancıoğlu, the Mayor of Melikgazi, visited the livestock market established behind the Mimarsinan Organized Industrial Zone by Melikgazi Municipality in preparation for Eid al-Adha, which will be observed from June 16th to 19th. He inspected the completed works and stated,

 'Our Livestock Markets are Ready for the Eid.'

Mayor Palancıoğlu emphasized that efforts are being meticulously carried out to ensure that citizens can perform their sacrificial rituals in a peaceful environment. He stated, 'This year, we will once again observe Eid al-Adha together with peace and health, by the grace of Allah.' Mimarsinan Region, covering an area of 100,000 square meters, has been prepared as a large space for the sale and slaughter of both large and small livestock. As of today, trial slaughters are also being conducted for large livestock. May the Almighty grant us the opportunity to celebrate Eid al-Adha with joy. Here, our citizens can easily access a central location to purchase and have their sacrificial animals slaughtered. We are located just behind the Mimarsinan Organized Industrial Zone. They can purchase their sacrificial animals here and make reservations for slaughter right next to it for large livestock, and they will also have the opportunity to have small livestock slaughtered in our slaughterhouses below. I pray that the worship we will perform in advance be accepted by the Almighty, and I wish everyone a blessed Eid. Together with the Provincial and District Agriculture Directorates, we are striving to ensure that this place operates in the most hygienic and beautiful manner. We thank them as well. Hopefully, we will reach many more Eid al-Adhas together in the future.

Melikgazi District Agriculture Director Oktay Sağnak stated that the preparations for Eid al-Adha have reached the final stages. He said, "We are in the final stages of preparation for Eid al-Adha. Our sacrificial animals have reached the market. Thanks to our Mayor, the largest livestock market in Central Anatolia has been established in Melikgazi. Currently, animal sales are continuing rapidly. Today, we have also conducted a trial slaughter. We hope for a safe and accident-free slaughter during the holiday. May Allah accept it."
