Turkey adds former Palestinian politician Dahlan to most wanted list

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey has added exiled Palestinian politician Mohammed Dahlan to its “red list” of most-wanted terrorism suspects, offering a reward of up to 10 million lira ($1.75 million) for information leading to his capture, the Interior Ministry said on Friday.

Arrest warrants have been issued for Dahlan on accusations of playing a role in the 2016 attempted coup in Turkey, seeking to change the constitutional order by force, and various spying-related charges, the ministry said in a statement.

Dahlan has also recently been an outspoken critic of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.


Dahlan has lived in the United Arab Emirates since he was driven out of the Palestinian territories in 2011 after a row with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

He was formerly an elected member of Abbas’ Fatah party central committee, and was a fierce foe of Hamas, the Islamist group that rules the Gaza Strip and which has forged close ties with Turkey.
