One Year Passes By since Palestinian Photojournalist Niraz Sa’id Died in Syrian Jails

Palestinian photographer Niraz Sa’id, from Yarmouk Camp, died one year ago under torture in Syrian government jails, where he had been detained for three years.

Niraz Sa’id was kidnapped on October 2, 2015 by Syrian government forces and dragged to a detention center in Damascus.

Sa’id left Yarmouk after ISIS stormed the camp on April 1, 2015. Sa’id, along with other peaceful activists, faced several assassination threats.

The casualty received several awards for his works of art documenting the different phases of the blockade imposed on Yarmouk. One such reward was given to him by UNRWA during a photography competition. Sa’id’s timeless photograph capturing the anguish of children affected by the ongoing conflict in Syria won first prize in the European Union-supported 2014 UNRWA youth photography competition. Titled ‘The Three Kings’, the image shows three brothers waiting their turn to leave the besieged refugee camp in order to receive medical treatment.

Sa’id also received several international awards for his film “Letters from Yarmouk”. His photos were put on display in two exhibitions in Occupied Jerusalem and Ramallah.
