Martyr Rifat Salih buried after 53 years

Rifat Salih, who went missing in Lefke in 1964, and whose remains were found during excavations to find missing people, has been buried in Lefke in a military ceremony.

Rifat Salih was kidnapped by EOKA members on 6 February 1964 while travelling to Famagusta with Hüseyin Ertan Ali.

In a speech during the military ceremony, Rifat Salih’s son Salih Hacısalih said that his father was brutally killed by the Greek Cypriot terrorist organization EOKA just for being a Turk.
