Palestinian Child Hadil Forcibly Disappeared in Syrian Gov’t Jails for 6th Year

Palestinian Child Hadil Forcibly Disappeared in Syrian Gov’t Jails for 6th Year

Palestinian child Hadil AlAyathi has been secretly held in Syrian state prisons for six years running, along with her mother Taghrid Eissat.

The mother and her daughter were kidnapped in March 2013 as they passed through the government-run AlAlaaf checkpoint, in al Hajar AlAswad area, adjacent to Yarmouk Camp. Their fate and whereabouts remain mysterious.

AGPS continues to urge the Syrian authorities to disclose the fate of the two detainees among other Palestinian refugees held behind prison bars.

AGPS kept record of the secret incarceration of 1,758 Palestinian refugees in Syrian government jails, among them 108 women and girls.

AGPS believes that the arbitrary internment of Palestinian refugees, particularly children, in war-torn Syria amounts to a war crime.

Families of Palestinian women and girls continue to voice their deep disappointment over the apathy maintained by the international community, the Palestine Liberation Organization, and the human rights NGOs regarding the mystery in which their relatives’ fates have been shrouded in Syria.

According to affidavits by ex-detainees and breakaways, Palestinian women and girls have been subjected to harsh psycho-physical torture tactics in Syrian penitentiaries, including electric shocks, heavy beating using iron sticks, and sexual abuse.

Such practices represent flagrant violations of the Declaration on the Protection of Women and Children in Emergency and Armed Conflict of 1974, Article 5, which criminalizes all forms of torture and mistreatment against women and children.
