The Action Group for Palestinians of Syria said that more than 110 Palestinian-Syrian women are still detained by the Assad regime, with the majority detained at entrances of Palestinian refugee camps and at security checkpoints across Syria.
In a report issued on Monday, the London-based monitoring group said that it compiled a list of the names of 34 Palestinian-Syrian women who were killed under torture in the prisons of the Assad regime, the bodies of whom were not handed over to their families.
The Group pointed out that the Assad regime’s security forces still withhold information on the fate and names of Palestinian-Syrian detainees in their custody.
According to the Group, the Assad regime has detained more than 1,787 Palestinian-Syrians since March 2012, indicating the real number of detainees could be much higher in view of the lack of official figures on Palestinian-Syrian detainees in Syria. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
