13 Turks kidnapped by thugs off the coast of Nigeria were rescued after 20 days of captivity and returned home safely. This kidnapping, which attracted the attention of the public, was followed closely. It is hard to say that Turks kidnapped in Libya saw the same attention. No news has been received from Turks held hostage by Haftar for 1 year.
Simge Health said, “My father is suddenly detained while working in their workplaces. We cannot hear from that day until today.”
Meltem Gözel Demir, daughter of Halil Gözel, who has not been heard again since February 6, 2020, said, “We are devastated as families. They do not have any crimes, the only reason they were kidnapped is because they are Turkish. Therefore, I beg the authorities, I want to meet my father.”
Simge Health, “Are they alive? What are they eating and drinking. Where are they being looked after, they are tortured, we do not get any news. We can neither hear their voices, nor do we have a small sight from them.”
Some are baklava masters, some are workers in restaurants, some are engineers. The situation of the Turks kidnapped and detained by Haftar forces is curious. The families stated that they do not know the fate of their abducted relatives and are waiting for help.
According to the information obtained by CNN Türk, there are many Turkish citizens kidnapped and held hostage by Haftar’s forces. Some Turkish citizens who were kidnapped in the past months were released after the contacts.
