Palestinian Migrants Disappear Off Turkish Coast

A number of Palestinian migrants from the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip and Syria have gone missing west of the Turkish seashore, onboard a Greece-bound vessel, since March 27, 2019.

Activist Ahmad AlShabarawi said six Palestinians have disappeared. The names that figure on the list are: Mohamed Marwan Tamim and Mohamed Dhafer AlNajar, both from Yarmouk Camp, along with Raed Mabrouk, Ziad Radi, Mohamed AlHasasna, and Mohamed AlBaheisi, from Gaza. Two other names—Amar Yaser Amouri and Mohamed Yaser Amouri—figure in posts shared on Facebook.

There have been conflicting reports about the migrants’ condition and whereabouts. Unverified sources said a number of migrants have been detained by the Turkish police while others said they drowned off the Aegean coast. Three dead bodies have reportedly been found by the Greek authorities.

The activists said a Palestinian envoy landed on Rhodes Island in an attempt to hold contacts with Greek authorities and follow up on the case.

The activist quoted the Palestinian delegation as pledging to reach out to the Turkish authorities over the condition of the detained migrants.

Turkey and Greece have served as major launch-off points for migrants fleeing Syria, among other war-stricken zones, onboard “death boats” bound for Europe, as they rummaged around for a safe shelter.

AGPS kept record of the death of dozens of Palestinians at sea, trying to reach European destinations.
