Kurdistan Authorities Allow Palestinian Family from Syria to Enter Erbil

Authorities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq lifted a ban on the family of Palestinian refugee Fadi Khaled Nasrullah to enter Erbil city, after they were caught by the Turkish authorities on June 27, 2019, and detained for one day. They were later pushed back to Erbil, where authorities threatened to forcibly deport them to Lebanon, pending their transfer to Syria.

Sometime earlier, the family landed at the Khartoum Aiport, where they were ordered to shell out 2,000$ so as to be allowed to stay in the country. They were deported to the Cairo International Airport soon after, as they failed to pay the required sum. Two days later, they obtained a visa to enter Erbil.

In appeals emailed to AGPS nearly a couple of weeks ago, the family called on the concerned human rights bodies, the Palestine Liberation Organization, and Palestinian factions to take urgent steps in order to pressurize the Kurdistan authorities to backtrack on the refoulement decision. The wife said that the family has lost all of its belongings and property in the Syrian warfare and that any attempt to force them back to Syria will make their situation far worse.
