Palestinian Activist Tortured to Death in Syrian Jails

The family of the Palestinian refugee Ammar Omar AlTobeh has appealed to the human rights institutions to urgently intervene and work on disclosing the fate of their son who has gone missing for over three years.

In letters emailed to AGPS, the family said Ammar headed for Turkey with his friends in an attempt to reach Europe. However, his relatives have failed to keep in touch with him from the moment he had reached Bab AlHawa area.

The mother said she was once told that Ammar was admitted at a hospital in Reyhanli; Others said he got hospitalized in Antakya; Another source told her that her son entered a hospital for prenatal care.

The mother added that she received medical reports confirming her son’s death and burial, before she found out that the report was fake.

The mother expressed concerns that her son might have been killed, kidnapped, or robbed, saying he was holding over $3,000.

Voicing her deep sorrow, the mother urged the Turkish authorities to immediately launch a fact-finding probe to reveal her son’s fate.

Over 300 Palestinian refugees have disappeared since the outbreak of the Syrian warfare, including 38 women and girls. Most of the missing Palestinians were residents of Yarmouk Camp, south of Damascus.
