Families Appeal to Opposition Forces to Release Imprisoned Relatives

AGPS has documented the enforced disappearance of dozens of Palestinian refugees by opposition forces in Syria, at a time when scores of refugees continue to escape government-held zones across the war-torn country.

AGPS data indicates the presence of over 40 Palestinian refugees in detention centers run by the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army, which controls large parts of Aleppo’s outskirts along with other areas north of Syria.

The refugees were arrested on way to Turkey, on charges of affiliations with pro-regime squads.

Detainees are brought before courts in opposition-held areas. Prison terms range from one to five years. Often, the court demands that prisoners be defended by lawyers. 

Security measures at checkpoints run by Tahrir AlSham opposition groups seem to be a little less hard than those taken by the Free Army. People passing through the 106 checkpoint are interrogated by Tahrir AlSham officers. Some of them, especially military evaders or breakaways, are required to pay an arson of 100 to 1000 USD, before they are allowed to head for Turkey.

Eye-witnesses, said security measures implemented by the Syrian regime are much harder than those taken by opposition groups.

AGPS has documented the secret detention of 1,797 Palestinian refugees in state-run penal complexes across war-torn Syria, among them 110 women and girls.

AGPS also documented the death of over 550 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).
