Palestinian Girl Salma Abdul Razaq Secretly Held in Syrian Prison for 9th Year

Palestinian student Salma Abdul Razak, enrolled at the Architectural Engineering University in Damascus, has been enduring a mysterious fate in Syrian government penitentiaries.

Born on March 30, 1990, Salma fled Yarmouk Camp after it was struck with Mig fighter jets. She was kidnapped as she attempted to re-enter the camp on December 30, 2012 via a checkpoint pitched near AlBashir Mosque, after reports emerged that her brother was injured with sniper fire.

She was transferred, along with Palestinian refugee Husam Maw’ed, to an unknown location and charged with assisting refugees and tending to the wounded.

Several appeals were sent by her family to the Palestine Liberation Organization and Palestinian factions. However, no data has been revealed on Salma’s condition and whereabouts.

According to AGPS statistics, 110 Palestinian women and girls figure on a list of 1,797 refugees secretly held in Syrian government dungeons.

AGPS believes the exact numbers to be far higher due to the gag orders slapped by the Syrian government on the fates and whereabouts of the detainees and the families’ reluctance to report cases of torture and enforced disappearance over retaliation concerns.
