Palestinian Brother Drowns off Aegean Coast, Brother Missing

Palestinian refugee Mohamed Khaled Dalati, raised in Syria’s Yarmouk Camp, was pronounced dead after he drowned off the Aegean seashore. His brother Khaled has gone missing.

The refugees boarded a migrant vessel bound for Europe. AGPS could not identify the details of the trip and the nationalities of the missing migrants.

On Monday, January 6, eight migrants died after a migrant boat went down off the coast of Fethiye, in Turkey's southwest. Seven other migrants have been missing, according to Turkey's Ministry of Interior.

Turkey is a main crossing point for migrants, including Palestinian refugees, trying to make their way to Europe to escape violent conflicts or economic hardship.

Rights groups have kept record of the death of dozens of Palestinian refugees onboard Europe-bound boats, as they fled war-torn Syria to Turkey, before heading for neighboring Greece and other coastal destinations.

A deal between Turkey and the European Union in 2016 helped stem migration flows, but many asylum-seekers still attempt the dangerous trip across the Aegean Sea to Greek islands.
