54 Palestinian Residents of AlSabina Camp Forcibly Disappeared in Syrian Prisons

54 Palestinians taking refuge in AlSabina Camp, among them two women, have been enduring mysterious fates in Syria’s state-run prisons.

AGPS has kept record of the death of over 620 Palestinian refugees under torture in Syria’s state-run lock-ups.

AGPS has also documented the secret detention of over 1,790 Palestinian refugees, including women and minors, in Syrian government prisons.

Affidavits by ex-detainees have 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).

AGPS continues to urge the Syrian government to disclose the fate of scores of Palestinians held in its lock-ups, release the bodies of those tortured to death, to seriously work on halting harsh torture tactics, launch fact-finding probes into crimes of torture, and to bring those involved in such crimes before courts.
