Migrant Boat Carrying 26 Palestinian Refugees Intercepted off Turkish Coast

A Greece-bound boat carrying dozens of irregular migrants, including 26 Palestinian refugees, was intercepted by the Turkish coast guard off Aydin seashore, west of Turkey.

The migrants were taken to Aydın Provincial Directorate of Migration Management.

A few days earlier, 12 people died after a boat carrying migrants sank off southwestern Turkey. The boat went down off the coast of Bodrum district in Mugla province. The list of victims includes Palestinian refugee from Syria Ahmad Abu Hamida, a resident of AlNeirab Camp, in Aleppo.

Turkey is a transit country for migrants trying to reach Europe. But a March 2016 deal between Turkey and the European Union helped staunch the flow.

Between January and June this year, 555 migrants died attempting to cross the Mediterranean, according to the International Organization for Migration.
