A Palestinian tourist has been deported by Turkish authorities after posting a video on Instagram where he blows his nose with a banknote that is worth 20 Turkish liras.

The 10-second video footage, which has since been taken down, shows Mohamad Nader Badarneh, an Israeli citizen of Palestinian origin, is holding a wad of cash and making fun of the lira currency that has recently hit a record low.

According to the Sputnik news portal,  a day after the video was posted online, İstanbul police detained Badarneh at the hotel he was staying and subsequently deported him back to Israel.

The annual inflation rate had shot up to 15.6 percent by February, while the Turkish lira has lost more than half its value against the dollar since the start of 2018.
