Torture victim | Settled-statue young man from Daraa dies under torture in regime security services’ prisons

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the death of a young man from Nawa city in western Daraa countryside, under torture inside the security services’ prisons of the Syrian regime. It is worth noting that the young man had struck a reconciliation deal after the regime took control of Daraa in 2018. The deal, however, which was brokered by Russia, did not prevent the security services from arresting him and tortured him to death. His family was informed of his death yesterday.

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 16,253 fatalities, all documented by names: 16,064 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.
