Turkey Pushes Back 5 Palestinian Refugees to Syria in 2 Days

Two Palestinian refugees were deported by the Turkish authorities to northern Syria, just a few hours after another three refugees were subjected to a similar fate, Palestinian activists have reported.

Palestinian refugees Ahmad Yousef Abu Naser and Othman Mousa Khalil, residents of AlSabina Camp in Rif Dimashq, were arrested a few days ago, before they were forcibly sent back to northern Syria.

A couple of days earlier, three Palestinian refugees—Mohamed AlZu’bi, Rashed Hejazi, and Udai AlJadaa, from Syria’s Yarmouk Camp—were deported by the Turkish authorities to northern Syria after they were arrested on September 29, 2019, on their way to Greece from Aydın Province, in Turkey's Aegean Region.

Turkish police officers reportedly tore the refugees’ travel documents, including Palestinian Authority passports, UNRWA aid cards, and provisional identity documents, before they pushed them back to Idlib on Monday, October 7.

Palestinian and Syrian migrants in Turkey face an exacerbated humanitarian situation due to the absence of vital services, including health care, housing, and relief assistance. The refugees continue denounce the mistreatment and crackdowns they have been subjected to by the Turkish police.

Turkey has served as a major launch-off point for migrants fleeing Syria, among other war-stricken zones, onboard “death boats” bound for Europe.

AGPS kept record of the death of dozens of Palestinian refugees at sea, trying to reach European destinations.
