Calls Launched for Releasing Palestinians Detained in Turkey

Activists have urged the Turkish authorities to release Palestinian refugees from Syria Emad Ahmad AlSaadani, born in 1995, and Emad Abu Zeid, born in 1967, who have been held in Turkish custody for over 15 days.

An AGPS correspondent said both refugees, residents of Yarmouk Camp, in Damascus, were arrested by Turkish security forces in Izmir province after they illegally entered Turkey and failed to obtain the temporary protection card “kimlik”. The arrestees were taken to a migration detention center pending their deportation to northern 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.
