Ionic 2 - searchbar support for right-to-left input

Does Ionic 2 input components, specifically searchbar, support right-to-left input direction?
I’m trying to build a search page for right-to-left language scripts but couldn’t find anything about this in the documentation.

I tried adding dir=“rtl” property which worked but it moves the placeholder text to the right while magnifier icon still stays in the center and as soon as start typing, magnifier icon moves to the left instead of right.

Is there a property to change the input direction in proper way? or if it is not supported, is there a work around?

did you find any solution? i have the same issue

for search bar text to be in rtl or ltr use direction:ltr; or direction:rtl respectively

but i donno how to make place holder text to be in rtl
