Palestinian mother and Her 2 daughters forcibly disappeared in Syrian prisons for 7th year
Palestinian refugee Fidaa Atiyeh Ajaj and her daughters Aya Mohamed Khalil and Israa Mohamed Khalil have been secretly held in Syrian government prisons for the seventh consecutive year.

Sometime earlier, an ex-detainee released from Syrian lock-ups said that the woman and her daughters were transferred from a penal complex run by the Air Force Intelligence to an unknown destination. They were last seen in 2013, when they were arrested by the Syrian regime troops at a checkpoint pitched in Sehnaya town, in Rif Dimashq. Their condition and whereabouts have been shrouded in mystery.

Affidavits released by ex-detainees confirmed the presence of Palestinian refugee toddlers held in their mothers’ arms in Syrian government lock-ups.

AGPS documented the secret incarceration of 1,797 Palestinian refugees in Syrian prisons, including 110 women and girls.

Hundreds of Palestinian refugees have also been tortured to death behind Syria’s prison bars. The government forces have been withholding their cadavers in unknown locations, preventing their families from bidding them last farewell.
