Palestinian Refugee Rami Afif Qasem Forcibly Disappeared in Syria

The family of Palestinian refugee from Syria Rami Afif Kasem appealed to the national and international human rights institutions to work on identifying the condition and whereabouts of their missing relative.

In appeals emailed to AGPS, the family said Rami disappeared on December 29, 2012 on his way back home to AlHajar AlAswad from ALZahira in Damascus.

329 Palestinian refugees, including 37 women and girls, have gone missing since the outbreak of the Syrian warfare, AGPS has found out.

Most of those who have disappeared in the country are residents of Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus.

Activists have accused pro-government militias of targeting Palestinians in arbitrary abduction sweeps carried out under the security guise. Scores of families have been blackmailed over the release of their missing relatives and have paid large sums of money to brokers, crooked lawyers, or government officials to get pieces of information about their conditions and whereabouts.

AGPS believes that the number is far higher due to the gag orders enforced by the Syrian authorities on the detainees’ fates and names, along with the reluctance of the refugee families to reveal the names of their deceased or missing relatives for fear of retaliation.
