GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — The Turkish Ministry of Interior announced Nov. 22 that it will include the dismissed leader of the Fatah movement, Mohammed Dahlan, on its most-wanted terrorists list. The ministry offered a $700,000 bounty to anyone who provides information leading to his arrest.
Dahlan, who is currently residing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is the political opponent of President Mahmoud Abbas. The Palestinian Authority (PA) has been trying to issue a Red Notice against Dahlan through Interpol. It was turned down twice: on Sept. 27, 2017, and most recently on May 21. Interpol justified its rejection saying that the PA’s request is inconsistent with its laws prohibiting interference in matters of a political nature.
