On 70th Anniversary of Geneva Conventions, Palestinian Families Appeal for Information over Forcibly Disappeared Relatives

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Geneva Conventions, families of Palestinian refugees held in Syria’s state-run prisons have appealed to the international community to unravel the condition and whereabouts of their jailed relatives and push for their release.

In letters emailed to AGPS, Palestinian refugees referred to the Geneva Conventions which stipulate that prisoners of war must at all times be humanely treated. Any unlawful act or omission by the detaining power causing death or seriously endangering the health of a prisoner of war in its custody is prohibited, and will be regarded as a serious breach of international law.

Hundreds of Palestinian detainees have been enduring mysterious fates in Syrian government dungeons, where scores of others have died as a result of torture. 

AGPS has frequently sounded the alarm over the violations perpetrated against Palestinian prisoners in war-torn Syria, most notable among these are arrests, abductions, executions, body disfigurement, sniper attacks, sexual abuse, enforced deportation, and denial of the right to a fair trial, among other violations that flagrantly breach international laws and treaties.

AGPS reiterates its calls to all warring parties in Syria to release all female refugees and disclose the fate of those secretly held in state dungeons.

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. 

AGPS kept record of the secret detention of 1,759 Palestinian detainees in Syrian government jails.
