Turkish NTV channel claimed on Wednesday that Münir Dural's vehicle was confiscated after he crossed into Syria and he was caught in a firefight while searching for his car. There was no information over where he might be killed in Syria. The report claimed that Dural was working in Saudi Arabia and came to Turkey for his vacation, Today's Zaman reported.

Last month, three buses carrying Turkish pilgrims to Turkey from Saudi Arabia, where they had gone to perform the Islamic pilgrimage, were attacked at a check point in Syria. Two Turkish citizens were wounded as a result of the assault.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry earlier issued a travel warning for Turkish citizens planning to travel to Syria. It warned Turkish nationals not to travel to Syria unless absolutely necessary due to difficulties in establishing public order, while also urging those currently in Syria to be cautious and remain in contact with Turkish missions at all times after pro-regime protestors attacked Turkish missions in Syria.
