The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria said that it compiled a list of the names of at least 1,180 Palestinian-Syrians who have been detained across Syria since the beginning of the Syrian revolution in 2011.
In a report published on its official website on Thursday, the Group said that the detainees included 248 residents of Khan al-Sheih refugee camp near Damascus and 237 others from the Returnees Refugee Camp in Homs city.
According to the report, the detainees included 98 who were detained from the Nairab camp in Aleppo, 83 from the Raml camp in Lattakia, 53 from al-Wafideen refugee camp in Hama, and 42 from Dara’a camp.
The report indicated that dozens of Palestinian-Syrians were detained in the rest of the camps across Syria. It noted that Assad regime refuses to disclose the fate of the detainees, while the relatives of the detainees choose to keep silent about the issue for fear of regime reprisals.
The Group’s monitoring and documentation team on Tuesday said that at least 311 Palestinian-Syrians have been killed by the regime snipers since the beginning of the Syrian revolution, the majority of whom were killed in the Yarmouk for Palestinian refugees in southern Damascus.
