Forcibly-Disappeared Palestinian Refugee in Syria Released after 7 Years in Syrian Jails

Palestinian refugee Ahmad Mustafa Khalil was released from Syrian government prisons following a seven-year secret detention term.

Sources close to the ex-prisoner said he has been forcibly disappeared since 2012. His family fled to the Turkish metropolitan city of Istanbul after they were told that he died in custody. Due to his mysterious fate, his wife, who failed to obtain information about his whereabouts, porced him and got married in another country.

Khalil, who has gone traumatized due to enforced disappearance and torture, launched appeals to reunite with his family. He was born and raised in Halfaya, north of Syria, before he moved to Hama province.

Activists have launched an online campaign in solidarity with Khalil, who has not met with his family for seven years.

AGPS documented the secret detention of 1,768 Palestinian refugees, including 108 women and girls, in Syrian government lock-ups.

Medical studies have shown that prisoners who fall prey to enforced disappearance and heavy psycho-physical torture are never the same again once they are released from penal complexes. The upshots of such a dreadful experience are so heavy that the ex-prisoner is very likely to lose his psychological equilibrium and remain traumatized for the rest of his/her lifetime.
