Palestinian Refugee from Syria Detained at Istanbul Airport

Palestinian refugee from Syria Mohamed Mahmoud Kablawi, born in 2000, was arrested by the Turkish authorities on his way out of Istanbul New Airport.

Reporting from Turkey, an AGPS correspondent said Kablawi was taken to a pre-removal detention centre, pending his deportation to northern Syria.

The refugees’ family have appealed to the international and Palestinian human rights and humanitarian institution to take urgent action in order to pressurize the Turkish authorities to backtrack on the refoulement threat, saying once he is pushed back to Syria he risks to have his academic career halted.

Recently, Turkish police stepped up crackdowns targeting irregular migrants, including hundreds of Palestinians from Syria who fled to the country owing to the bloody shootouts rocking the Syrian territories.

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.
