Mother of Forcibly Disappeared Palestinian Refugee in Syria Launches Cry for Help

The mother of the Palestinian refugee Nassim Ziad Abu Dheis appealed, in a letter handed over to AGPS, to the international human rights institutions, namely Amnesty International, to take urgent action so as to unearth the fate of her son, who has been forcibly disappeared in Syria for the eighth consecutive year.

Abu Dheis’s mother said her 43-year-old son, a resident of AlSeif neighborhood, in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo, was kidnapped on his way from Deir al-Zor to Damascus province.

The mother added that her health condition and psychological well-being have taken a turn for the worse due to her son’s absence.

She raised concerns over her son’s fate, saying that another son of hers had been tortured to death in Syrian lock-ups.

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).
