Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS) has documented that 617 Palestinian refugees, including 34 women, were tortured to death in Syrian prisons. Torture techniques in Assad’s gulag include electric shocks, heavy beating using iron sticks, sexual violence, & being hung to death. At least 110 more Palestinian women were forcibly disappeared in Syrian prisons.

The defeat of the Syrian Arab Spring will have profound consequences for the Palestinian struggle, not the least of which is the repugnant association of pro-Palestinian advocates with Assadism & Stalinism.
