Palestinian Refugee Detained at Istanbul Airport, Threatened with Refoulement

Palestinian refugee from Syria Mohamed Ajlani Younes, born in 1991, has been detained at Istanbul’s new airport for the 11th day over allegations of illegally attempting to enter the Turkish territories.

Speaking with AGPS by phone, Mohamed’s family said he left Lebanon through legal routes, via Rafic Hariri International Airport in Beirut on way to Iraq’s Erbil International Airport. He later attempted to enter Turkey using a fake Iraqi passport.

Mohamed was detained on May 26. The Turkish authorities have threatened to push him back to Erbil or Lebanon.

His family has appealed to the Turkish authorities, Palestine Embassy, and human rights organizations in Istanbul to make serious steps in order to release their son and cancel the deportation decision.
