Activists Appeal for Releasing Palestinian Refugee Detained in Turkey

Palestinian activists have urged the Turkish authorities to release the Palestinian refugee from Syria Alaa Mohamed Taha, who was arrested following a security sweep launched by the Turkish police in Esenyurt district, in Istanbul province.

Taha’s family said he has been detained by the Turkish police after they found out that he holds a Palestinian passport with neither a national ID number nor the entry stamp, adding that he obtained a kimlik card from Bursa.

His family members called on representatives of the Palestinian people in Turkey to reach out to Turkish officials and pressurize authorities to release Taha at the soonest possible time.

Unofficial statistics indicate that nearly 8,000 Palestinians from Syria have sought shelter in Turkey, where they have been facing dire socio-economic conditions and denied access to the local labor market.

Turkish embassies continue to prevent Palestinian refugees from Syria from obtaining visas. As a result, hundreds of Palestinians have embarked on life-threatening journeys via illegal immigration roads to reach Turkey, fleeing war-tattered Syria, among other war-stricken zones.
