Palestinian Refugee Rashed Husain Released after 5 Years in Syria Prison

Palestinian refugee Rashed Omar Husain, from Khan Eshieh Camp, in Rif Dimashq, was released from Syrian government jails, where he had been kept for five years.

According to data by AGPS, 1,768 Palestinian refugees, among them children, women and elderly refugees, have been enduring unknown fates in Syrian government lock-ups. The list includes 248 Palestinian residents of Khan Eshieh refugee camp.

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 of civilians.
