Torture victims | Young man from Daraa dies in Sednaya prison, while Nawa mosques call upon residents to register data of detainees to search for them
Daraa Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: SOHR activists have documented the death of a young man from Tafas city in Daraa countryside under torture in Sednaya prison, after nearly 30 months of detention (two years and half).
On the other hand, SOHR sources say that mosques in Nawa city in the western countryside of Daraa call upon the city’s residents to go to the headquarters of “Al-Hezb Branch” in order to register the data of the detainees to search for them, as they claimed.
As more people perish in detentions, the number of civilians who have died under torture in regime’s prisons since the beginning of the Syrian revolution rose to 16,248 fatalities, all documented by names: 16,059 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 killed, executed and/or died in regime prisons exceeded 104,000 people. Over 83% of the total death toll were killed and/or 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 alone, while the second largest percentage of killing occurred in the Air Force Intelligence detention facilities or prisons.
