Palestinian detainees released from the Syrian prisons confirm their arrests for being a family member of a wanted person or similarity of names

A number of Palestinian refugees who have been released by the Syrian regime have confirmed to the Action Group’s correspondent, that they were arrested by members of the Syrian security because they are from the family of a person wanted by the regime or instead of them, while others said that they were arrested due to the similarity of names with the wanted by the Syrian security services.

According to them, they were subjected to all kinds of torture and moved between a number of security branches. Signs of torture appeared on one person’s hand, after members of the Syrian security placed electric cables around his wrist, in addition to the effects of beatings and torture on his body. After they appear not to be the wanted person or unrelated to the required, they are released and given a patent paper. A few of them were arrested for a second time, due to the similarity of names.

The regime’s checkpoints are a major nightmare in the lives of Palestinian refugees, after their displacement from their camps and being searched, in addition to being in fear of arrestment and being drawn to the “military service.” The Syrian security services also perform raids of arrests of Palestinian youth from their homes, to force them to enroll in the military service.

The Action Group has documented the names of 1652 Palestinian detainees in the Syrian prisons. They Syrian regime continues to hide their fate.
