Palestinian Refugee Faysal Abu Shalah Forcibly Disappeared by Syrian Regime

Palestinian refugee Faysal Khaled Abu Shalah, born in 1974, has been secretly held in Syrian government prisons for the seventh consecutive year.

Faysal, a resident of AlMuzeireeb town, was arrested at a government checkpoint in Deraa, south of Syria, in July 2014.

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).
