Palestinian Refugee from Syria Released from Turkish Custody

Palestinian Refugee from Syria Released from Turkish Custody

The Turkish police released Palestinian refugee from Syria Emad Abu Zeid, born in 1967, after he had been kept in custody for over 15 days in Izmir province.

Palestinian refugee from Syria Emad Ahmad AlSaadani, born in 1995, has, however, been held in a Turkish detention center for over 15 days.

Over recent days, activists have urged the Turkish authorities to release the two Palestinian refugees after they were arrested by Turkish security forces in Izmir province for illegally entering Turkey from Syria. Both refugees, residents of Yarmouk Camp, in Damascus, 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.
