Kilis is a city in south-central Turkey, near the border with Syria, and the administrative centre of Kilis Province.History and populationKilis is a Turkish city and was part of the Aleppo Vilayet of the Ottoman Empire until the First World War, after which it passed to the Republic of Turkey. There was also a Armenian and Jewish community.The population of the town was 20,000 in 1927, 45,000 in 1970, 60,000 in 1980 and 85,000 in 1990. It then fell in the 1990s to 70,000 by 2000. The population was 82,109 in 2010.Being a border town, Kilis has long had a reputation for smuggling and drug trafficking and although this has apparently been reduced, even today cigarettes, spirits and cheap electrical items can be bought for cash at low prices.The local kebab known as Kilis Kebabi is renowned, and also the breads, baklava and stuffed vegetables.GeographyThe Kurd Mountains or Kurd-Dagh, also called Aleppo Mountain, is a highland region in northwestern Syria and southeastern Turkey. It is located in the Aleppo Governorate of Syria and Kilis Province of Turkey. Kurd Mountains are part of the Limestone Massif of northwestern Syria.
