New Testimony Released about Forced Disappearance of Palestinian Doctor in Syria

The colleague of Palestinian refugee Hayel Hamid, who has held in Syrian prisons for over seven years running, said Hayel was arrested after he protested against the arbitrary arrest and killing by the Syrian regime of peaceful demonstrators and their relatives.

Another colleague of Hayel said he was summoned to questioning by Syrian security forces several times. He was last kidnapped from his clinic in Yarmouk Camp.

Palestinian doctor and former prisoner in Syria, Omar Mheibash, said an investigator at AlMezzah prison, in Damascus, told him that Hayel was being held in a cell and denied medical treatment.

AGPS has been deeply concerned about the upsurge in the number of Palestinian victims of torture and enforced disappearance in Syria.

Over 1,790 Palestinian refugees have been secretly held in Syrian government dungeons since the outburst of deadly hostilities.

AGPS also documented the death of over 600 Palestinian refugees under torture in Syrian government lock-ups, including women, children, and elderly civilians.

Affidavits by ex-detainees provided evidence on the involvement of Syrian government officers in harsh torture tactics, including electric shocks, heavy beating using whips and iron sticks, and sexual abuse against Palestinian detainees, in a flagrant violation of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, commonly known as the United Nations Convention against Torture (UNCAT).
