12 Palestinian Refugees from Syria Fatally Shot by Turkish Gendarmerie

12 Palestinian refugees, including three women and a child, were gunned down by Turkish gendarmerie as they attempted to enter the Turkish territories, fleeing war-torn Syria.

The list of casualties includes Mohamed Ahmed AlKhalili, from Yarmouk Camp. He was shot dead while attempting to enter Turkey, along with his wife and children, in February 2016.

In March, 2016, 15-year-old Yazen Ghazi Bilal, from Daraa Camp, was shot as he fled ISIS-held zones in Doudiya, near I’zaz region, on the Turkish-Syrian borders.

On April 14, 2016, Palestinian refugee Emad Azzouz, his wife Amena Salah, and Hanan Mousa, from AlSayeda Zeinab Camp, were shot at the Ibrahim Khalil Khabour Turkish crossing point with Syria. Their toddler survived the shooting.

In the same month, Palestinian refugee Mohamed Ghazawi, from Yarmouk Camp, was shot dead by the Turkish border cops. One month later, Saadou Hasan Zaghmout, also from Yarmouk, was fatally shot.

On June 23, 2018, four Palestinian refugees were shot dead: Bahaa Reyad Assaad, Mohamed Fayez Assaad, Ahmad Fawaz Assaad, and Ahmad AlSheikh Assaad, all residents of Yarmouk Camp.

Activists have lashed out at the Turkish gendarmerie for infringing international laws and have called for serious probes into shooting attacks and crackdowns perpetrated against Palestinian refugees fleeing ravaged Syria.

AGPS also kept record of the abduction of scores of refugees as they attempted to enter the Turkish territories.

The Turkish embassies continue to prevent Palestinian refugees from Syria from obtaining visas. As a result, hundreds of Palestinians from Syria have embarked on life-threatening journeys via illegal immigration roads to reach Turkey and other launch-off destinations to Europe.

Palestinians from Syria in Turkey have been facing dire living conditions due to the lack of financial resources and restrictions on their access to the labor market. Several families were forced to return to Syria while others have sought asylum in nearby countries.
