237 Palestinian Residents of AlAyedeen Camp in Homs Forcibly Disappeared in Syrian Jails

AGPS documented the incarceration of 237 Palestinian refugees, including 10 women, taking shelter in AlAyedeen Camp, in Homs, in Syria’s state run dungeons since the outburst of the bloody conflict.

Field reporters believe the real numbers to be far higher due to the government’s reticence to reveal the names and fates of Palestinian detainees’ and the families’ fears to disclose their relatives’ names over retaliation concerns.

AGPS documented the death of over 600 Palestinian refugees under torture in Syrian government prisons since the outburst of the bloody warfare.

According to data by AGPS, 1,759 Palestinian refugees, among them children, women and elderly refugees, have been enduring unknown fates in Syrian government lock-ups. Toddlers clinging to their mothers’ arms have also been spotted in Syrian jails.

According to affidavits by ex-detainees, Palestinian refugees have been subjected to harsh psycho-physical torture tactics in Syrian penitentiaries, including electric shocks, heavy beating using iron sticks, and sexual abuse.

AGPS continues to urge the Syrian authorities to disclose the condition and whereabouts of Palestinian refugees held in its penitentiaries.

AGPS believes that such practices represent flagrant violations of international law, which criminalizes all forms of torture and mistreatment against civilians.
