(Zaman Al Wasl)- Syrian sactivists have surfaced a photo for a newly-released Syrian prisoner, showing a shocking physical condition he had passed through in six years in the regime security chambers.
When Abdul Hamid al-Haj Ali arrived his hometown in southern Daraa province, most of his family, relatives and neighbors were all of shock to see the young man has turned into an elderly.
His hair was fully grey and the face was tired and flabby with wrinkles caused due to the constant state of fear and torture.
Syrian opposition says more than 500,000 prisoners are still inside the prisons of the Syrian regime.
About 1.2 million Syrian citizens have been arrested and detained at some point in the regime’s detention centers, including 130,000 individuals who are still detained or forcibly disappeared by the Syrian regime, since the revolution erupted in March 2011, according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights.
The Detainees Association of Sednaya Prison released last November testimonies of torture survivors of the notorious detention facility.
According to the report, 100% of the detainees had been tortured physically and 97.8% had been tortured psychologically.
The nine-year-old war has claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands and forced 13 million people from their homes, half of whom have left their shattered homeland.
