Palestinians Raise Concerned over Forced Deportation from Istanbul

Palestinian refugees from Syria in Istanbul have voiced deep concern over the intent of the Turkish authorities to forcibly send them back to Syria as many of them overstayed their visas.

Turkish police have notified irregular migrants to leave the country by the end of October.

Fears of forced deportation have heightened following a visit paid by Istanbul mayor to Esenyurt district and the instructions he has given for pushing back Syrian and Palestinian migrants by October 29.

The Turkish authorities reportedly sent some 36,000 irregular migrants to removal centers established by the Interior Ministry since July 12. Another 5,700 unregistered Syrian migrants were also transferred to a shelter in Kilis province.

Hundreds of Palestinian families from Syria continue to appeal to the Turkish authorities and Palestinian embassies to work out their legal status and grant them humanitarian asylum.

Recently, Turkish police stepped down crackdowns and abduction sweeps targeting irregular migrants and non-holders of the kimlik visa card in Istanbul.

Nearly 2,400 Palestinian families from Syria have sought shelter in Turkey, including 1,200 families in Istanbul, where they have been facing an abject situation.

Khayra Ummah organization estimated that 400 Palestinian families from Syria without kimlik visas have been taking refuge in Turkey, including 300 families in Istanbul.
