"10 Palestinian Refugees Held in Turkish Detention Center for 15th day"

10 Palestinian refugees have been detained by the Turkish authorities at a so-called Krit Gendarme-Central detention center in Antakya for the 15th day running.

The list of detainees includes Jamil Khalil Emara, Ghufran Hamid, Ahmad Khaled Mohamed, Amal Hamid, eight-month-old Naya, Khaled Mahmoud AlKhatib, Ahmad Emad Mustafa and his wife and daughter, and Abdul Rahman Mahmoud.

The refugees urged the Turkish government to take all measures necessary to improve the living conditions endured by Palestinian families from Syria in shelters and refugee camps set up in Turkey.

The refugees said families held in detention centers have been grappling with tough conditions due to daily mistreatment and crackdowns.

Life in the so-called “Krit Gendarme” center is similar to life in prison, where the refugees’ movement is blocked inside and out and mobile phones seized. Public phones are allowed only once a day, a refugee told AGPS.

Children and women have also been separated from their fathers and husbands in the shelter. Several of those who have been sick or caught diseases in the center have been left without treatment.

Recently, the appeals launched by a Palestinian family to treat their eight-month-old toddler Naya have gone unheeded due to medicine shortage in the center.
