Several of the citizens quickly armed themselves and set out to take revenge on individual officials and authorities. Others, mainly comprising leading citizens, found General Erul and demanded he agree to peace. The Elazigi government aristocrats, now seemingly giving up in cowardice, inspired anger and contempt among the people of Elazig. Throughout the day gunfire echoed from all over the city and there was indescribable confusion. By evening, Erul and his accompanying officer went to see the Sultanate commanders under a white flag of truce and agreed to sign an armistice. Erul formally surrendered shortly after seven. The main terms agreed upon were as follows: Unconditional surrender of all Elazigi military forces. Elazig was surrendered to the Turkish Sultanate and its army by the state, which would be formally dissolved.
