As killing under torture continues in regime’s security prisons, more cases were documented after regime had acknowledged the killing of prisoners in its prisons and informed their families, as contact with these prisoners has been lost for months or years.
In this context, SOHR activists have documented the death of a university student from Al-Bab city in north eastern Aleppo. The victim died under torture in regime’s prisons after being arrested in Aleppo seven years ago.
As more people died, the number of civilians who have died under torture in regime’s prisons since the beginning of the Syrian revolution, rose to 16,205 fatalities documented by names: 16,016 men and young men, 125 children under the age of eighteen, and 64 women over the age of eighteen.
Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the number of people who were killed, executed and died in regime’s prisons exceeded 104,000 people. Over 83% of the total toll were killed, and died in these prisons between May 2013 and October 2015. SOHR sources have also confirmed that more than 30,000 detainees were killed in the notorious prison of Sednaya, while the second largest percentage of killing was in the Air Force Intelligence department.
