Palestinian Refugee from Syria Detained at Istanbul Airport

Palestinian refugee from Syria Kasem Rashid Rayan has been detained by the Turkish authorities at Istanbul’s new airport for the sixth consecutive day over allegations of illegal entry.

In appeals circulated on social media networks, Kasem’s family called on the Palestinian and international humanitarian and human rights institutions to take urgent action in order to release Kasem and provide him with physical and legal protection.

Kasem fled Syria’s Yarmouk Camp for Palestine refugees, south of Damascus, to Turkey, seeking a safe shelter and employment opportunities.

Unofficial statistics indicate that 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.
