Rights activists said that enforced disappearances, arbitrary arrests, and house raids by the security apparatuses of the Assad regime and its allied militias were not limited to politicians or specific societal groups.
The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria said that the Assad regime’s security forces have been detaining the Palestinian-Syrian doctor, Imad Eddin Saeed, since 2012.
In its latest report on the forcibly disappeared Palestinian-Syrians, the London-based rights group indicated that Saeed was detained from his home in the Husseinieh camp for Palestinian refugee in the Damascus suburbs in 2012. It added that nothing has been known about the fate or whereabouts of Saaed, who was born in 1987 and a graduate of Damascus University,
The Group pointed out that it receives lots of information about Palestinian-Syrian detainees, which it routinely documents despite the difficulties of documentation. It said that the Assad regime’s security branches continue to withhold information about the fate of detainees, their names, and places of detention.
The Group indicated that it documented more than 2,000 Palestinian-Syrians detained in the prisons of the Assad regime, including about 100 female detainees and many children.
