The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria has reported a significant increase in the number of Palestinian-Syrians held in prisons under the Assad regime. According to the group, after incorporating the data of newly detained individuals into its database, the total number of detainees has risen to 3,075.
This surge in Palestinian-Syrian detainees is attributed to Legislative Decree No. 7, which was issued by Bashar al-Assad, the regime’s leader, in 2022. The London-based monitoring group has highlighted this alarming development.
In an effort to expedite the search process for the detainees, the Action Group urges families to provide any information they have about their loved ones. They emphasize the importance of sharing this announcement widely, enabling the families to access and register through the provided channels.
Furthermore, the group called upon the Assad regime to release the Palestinian-Syrian detainees whose whereabouts remain unknown. It demanded thorough investigations into these cases and the enforcement of accountability for those involved in such practices, in accordance with international standards.
