Palestinian Refugee Detained in Turkey

Palestinian refugee from Syria Saer Munib AlLaham has been detained in Istanbul for illegally entering the country and failing to obtain the temporary protection card “kimlik”.

Activists said Saer has been held in a Turkish gendarmerie detention center on the country’s Asian side. He is very likely to be pushed back to Syria.

Activists and refugees’ families have appealed to the Palestinian Authority, Palestine Embassy, and all other concerned bodies to urge the Turkish authorities to backtrack on their crackdowns on Palestinians from Syria and provide them with the physical and legal protection they quite urgently need.

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.

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.
