Destiny of missing Palestinians in Turkey remains unknown and neither is reasons behind targeting Palestinians only .

Relatives of missing Palestinians, who disappeared in mysterious circumstances, are incredibly worried about their beloved's destinies and have urged the Palestinian embassy as well as Turkish authorities to intensify search operations.

Activists have widely shared the hashtags released by the missing Palestinians’ relatives- #وين_المفقودين_السبعة_في_تركيا and #أحمد_القيشاوي_وين_يا_تركيا (where are the 7 missing in Turkey and Turkey where’s Amad Al-Qeshawi?).

According to some news resources, a warning was issued calling Palestinians not to wander alone at night and stay in public places adding that a well kidnapping gang  is targeting Palestinians. 

Seven missing cases were reported, including two Gazan girls, since the start of the month, Samah Al-Qeshawi, a sister of one of missing Palestinians, Ahmad Al-Qeshawi revealed. She said her brother has been missing since last Friday and the authorities are being silent about it. 

A friend of one of the alleged survivors’ of the gang said that a white van with four people inside tracked his friend on his way back home in Beykent area in Istanbul leaving the back door open while shouting at him in Turkish word ‘Gel, Gel’, which means come.

He continued saying his friend started running away from them and rapidly grabbed his phone and took a photo to the van and sent it to another friend on WhatsApp in case anything happened to him.

Research operations are still under way and no statements were released by either the Turkish authorities nor the Palestinian Embassy in Istanbul and the destiny of  the missing Palestinians remains unknown.
