5 Years since 1st Palestinian Woman Was Tortured to Death in Syria Jail

AGPS continues to sound the alarm over the brutal torture tactics pursued by the Syrian authorities across penal complexes in the war-stricken country.

According to AGPS database, the first Palestinian woman who died under torture in Syrian state jails is Samira Ahmed AlSahli, aged 53. She was kidnapped in June 2014 from an aid-distribution center for Yarmouk residents. On November 08, 2014, Samira, the mother of four, breathed her last as a result of torture.

Samira worked as a nurse. She also served as a volunteer cook, preparing meals and raising funds for displaced civilians taking shelter at local schools. Her brother Mahmoud Ahmad AlSahli was fatally gunned down by snipers in Yarmouk Camp.

AGPS documented the death of 585 Palestinian refugees in Syrian government prisons, among them 77 victims who were identified via leaked photos. The list also includes 34 women and girls.

AGPS kept record of several cases where Palestinians have been kidnapped at government checkpoints or during assaults carried out by government troops on Palestinian refugee camps and shelters. In most such cases, the detainees’ families receive their relatives’ bodies from a military or government hospital while wrapped up in a plastic bag or in a blood-tainted piece of cloth.
