Palestinian Journalist Muhannad Omar Forcibly Disappeared by Syrian Gov’t

Palestinian journalist Muhannad Mohamed Omar has been enduring a mysterious fate in Syrian government lock-ups for the eighth year running.

Omar was kidnapped by the government troops from the office of AlAlem Channel on February 29, 2012 on account of his affiliations with opposition outfits.

The journalist was born in Yarmouk in 1985. He is the father of two kids. He taught Arabic literature at AlBaath University in Homs and worked as a journalist at AlQuds International Foundation, before he moved to AlAlem news channel in Damascus.

On May 15, 2011, he joined protests calling for return to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, which he had entered sometime later with a group of Palestinian youth.

He wrote several blogs on the situation of the Palestinians of Syria and the human rights violations perpetrated by the Syrian government since the outbreak of the conflict. His condition and whereabouts have been shrouded in mystery.

AGPS documented the secret incarceration of 1,788 Palestinian refugees in Syrian government lock-ups, among them dozens of women and minors.
