Mazıdağı (Syriac:Samrah, Kurdish: Şemrex) is a district of Mardin Province in the southeastern Anatolia region of Turkey. Today Sunni Muslim Kurdish people form a majority in this district as a result of the Assyrian Genocide and migration of the local Assyrian/Syriac people. Prior to this, nomadic Kurdish tribes inhabited the surrounding mountains.
Many Kurdish inhabitants moved to the provinces centre such as Diyarbekir, Mardin and Batman due to poverty and the conflict between the Turkish government and the PKK. The municipality towns elections were won by Hasip Aktas a member of the Democratic Society Party with %57 of all votes in 2009. Mazıdağı region is very rich in phosphate mines.
