Nearly 100 Palestinian-Syrians from Nairab Camp Detained by Assad Regime since March 2011

The Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) said that it had compiled a list of the names of 98 Palestinian-Syrians from the Nairab Camp for Palestinian Refugees in Aleppo who have been detained by the Assad regime since March 2011.

The London-based monitoring group said that at least 182 residents of the Camp were killed in the same period, noting that the number could be much higher. It also said that many of the detainees in the Assad regime’s custody died under torture.

In a report issued on January 21, the Group said that 248 Palestinian-Syrians from the Khan Al-Sheeh camp near Damascus, including women, children, and elderly people, have been forcibly disappeared by the Assad regime since March 2011.

According to multiple reports by rights groups, there are 1,781 Palestinian-Syrians in the prisons of the Assad regime, including 108 women.

The Assad regime’s security services continue to withhold information about the fate and whereabout of Palestinian-Syrians in their custody, with ex-detainees acting as the only source of information about the fate of those still in detention. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
