Over 1,724 Palestinian Refugees Enduring Mysterious Fate in Syrian State Jails

Over 1,724 Palestinian refugees have been secretly held in Syrian government dungeons, where 565 others have been tortured to death.

AGPS has been deeply concerned about the upsurge in the number of Palestinian victims of torture and enforced disappearance in Syria.

AGPS estimates the real number of victims to be far higher than that disclosed by the Syrian government. Dozens of families have refused to reveal their relatives’ names for fear of retaliation.

AGPS continues to urge the Syrian government to reveal the exact number and fate of Palestinian detainees, to seriously work on halting harsh torture tactics, launch fact-finding probes into crimes of torture, and to bring those involved in such crimes before courts.
