The Action Group for the Palestinians of Syria said that at least 110 Palestinian-Syrian women are still detained in the prisons of the Assad regime which refuses to give any information about their fate or whereabouts.
In a statement issued on Friday, the London-based monitoring group said that no fewer than 498 Palestinian-Syrian women have so far been killed across Syria since March 2011. It indicated that the deaths took place due to shelling, armed clashes, siege, torture in detention centers, and drowning while trying to seek asylum.
The Group indicated that nine Palestinian-Syrian detainees died in the prisons of the Assad regime in 2022, bringing the total number to 643 since March 2011, including women and children.
The Group stressed that the torture and ill-treatment Palestinian-Syrian detainees are suffering in the prisons of the Assad regime amounts to a war crime as the regime continues its violations against detainees, including torture, execution and enforced disappearance.
The Group said that since March 2011, it has documented the deaths of 4,147, Palestinian-Syrians and the detention of 1,800 others.
