Hi Baris, the Wikipedia article talks about the war with the Greeks, did they play any role in the Great War?

Hi Nikel, probably not. Mostly internal fighting, tribal community with a few rebellions triggered by them before WW1 era. Greek war maintained unity with the authority. In the picture, housing architecture is very similar as today. Stone houses are common.
