Death chased many palestinians who migrated to turkiye and caught them during earthquake

Many Palestinians migrated to Turkiye nearly a decade ago to stay safe from Israeli forces and attacks.

However, death chased them and caught them on Monday when the deadliest earthquake hit Turkiye and Syria. Ankara is almost 940-kms away from Gaza.

About 70 Palestinians have died in the earthquakes which caused the large-scale devastation in Turkiye.

According to the Palestinian Foreign Ministry, Abu Jalhoum, his wife Fatima, and their four children, are among 70 Palestinians who died in the earthquake in Turkiye. The overall death toll in the quake has shot beyond 21,000 in both countries _ Turkiye and Syria.

“My brother went to Türkiye to seek a better life away from wars and blockades here in Gaza,” Abu Jalhoum’s brother, Ramzy, 43, told media.

Many relatives of the deceased gathered at the family’s house in the town of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday to pay respects.

“We lost the family. An entire family was wiped off the civil registration record,” he said.

Before migrating to Turkiye, Abu Jalhoum was operating a taxi in Gaza to support a growing family. In 2010, he left Gaza and shifted to Türkiye, where he worked in a wood factory in Antakya. Fatima and their children joined him once he was established.
