A large area of land that was seized in 1964 in Istanbul's Zeytinburnu district has been given to the Surp Pırgic Hospital Foundation

Turkey's Directorate General for Foundations (VGM) officially returned the land on Saturday.

The land consists of a parking area, a tea garden, and a Zeytinburnu stadium sports complex, which are all located on the land.

The hospital foundation has said that it will decide on how it will use the land. 

Turkey’s minority communities have over the years filed lawsuits to retrieve the confiscated property, following the enactment of a new foundation law in 2011.
