[Gmsh] Very strange effect - Mesh elements deleted when saving

Dear All,

The problem I have is the following: Once i have saved the mesh, some
elements (parallel to the z direction), disappear whan I open the mesh
again. (see screenshots). Thus, the mesh does not work properly in the
right part of the geometry.

Does anybody have an idea why this could be?? I'm sincerely desperated.

I have the following geometry:
