Palestinian Family Appeals for Information over Forcibly-Disappeared Elderly in Syria

Palestinian refugee Ismail Kasem has been secretly held in Syria’s state-run prisons for the eighth consecutive year.

His family and relatives have appealed to ex-prisoners and activists who have pieces of information about his condition and whereabouts to reach out to AGPS.

Ismail was born in 1950 and raised in AlHusainiya Camp, in Rif Dimashq. He was arrested in July 2013 on the road to Damascus Airport.

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 has 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 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).
