Palestinian Refugee Nader AlNader Forcibly Disappeared in Syria for 7th Year

Palestinian refugee Nader Adel AlNader has been secretly held in Syria’s state-run prisons for over seven years running.

Nader, born in 1978 in Yarmouk Camp, was arrested in January 2014 as he turned himself in to security forces deployed near the main entrance to Yarmouk Camp. At the time, Nader had hoped to reconcile with the Syrian regime and work out his legal status.

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 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).
