A few days after being released from regime prison | Young man from Al-Quneitra countryside dies of lung disorders, after two years of detention

SOHR activists have documented the death of a young man from Al-Quneitra countryside in south Syria region, a few days after being released from the regime prison, as he had been arrested two years ago.

 

According to local sources, the young man was taken to a hospital, just after he was released from the prison, as he was suffering from a critical lung disease.

 

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.
