The family of Palestinian refugee Ismail Mohamed Falaha continues to appeal for information about their son’s whereabouts. Born in a Syrian refugee camp in 1987, he was arrested & forcibly disappeared by Syrian security forces in September 2011

Action Group For Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) has documentation that over 540 Palestinian refugees, including 34 women & many minors, died under torture in Assad’s gulag. Palestinians have been kidnapped at government checkpoints or during assaults carried out by government troops on Palestinian refugee camps & shelters. In most of these cases, the families received their relatives’ bodies from a military or government hospital wrapped in a plastic bag or a blood-stained piece of cloth.
