Palestinian Sisters Secretly Held in Syrian State Jail for 6th Year

Palestinian sisters Hoda Mahmoud Khatib, born in 1975, and Samira Mahmoud Khatib, born in 1970, have been enduring mysterious fates in Syrian government prisons for the sixth year running.

The sisters, both residents of Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus, have been held behind Syria’s prison bars since 2013.

Their family continues to appeal to the international human rights bodies, UNRWA, and the Palestine Embassy in Damascus to immediately step in and pressurize the Syrian authorities to disclose the sisters’ condition and whereabouts.

AGPS kept record of the names of 1,750 Palestinians, including 107 women and girls, secretly incarcerated in Syrian state penitentiaries, where over 570 refugees also died under torture.
