Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh has voiced deep concern over the fate of seven Palestinians who have mysteriously gone missing in Turkey.
In a statement issued by his office, the Premier called on the Palestinian ambassador to Turkey, Fayed Mustafa, to investigate the causes of the sudden disappearance of the Palestinians and their whereabouts.
The PM called on the Turkish authorities to work on disclosing the fate of the missing Palestinians and step up search operations, expressing confidence in Turkey’s efforts to maintain security for its nationals and visitors.
Seven Palestinians went missing in Turkey since the beginning of this month; five in Istanbul, one in Konya city, and another near the Turkish-Greek border.
