After three years of detention | Young man dies under brutal torturing and medical neglect in Saidaniya Prison

Al-Suwaydaa province: A 28 years-old young man from Barik Village in eastern Al-Suwaydaa countryside died under brutal torturing and medical neglect after three years of being arrested in the infamous Saidaniya Military Prison, where he was arrested in 2020 for “not performing compulsory service.”

According to reliable SOHR sources, the young man suffered hemiplegia days before he died.

According to SOHR statistics, the number of people who have died under torture in regime prisons and security centres since early 2023 has reached 41, including a regime army defector, a member of the regime’s military security service, a member of a local faction in Al-Suwaidaa and a regime military correspondent.
