The number of Palestinian refugees who were killed under torture in regime security branches has increased to 35 people, including seven women. Most of the victims have been identified following the publication of thousands of leaked pictures of victims of torture in Bashar al-Assad's prisons, while a Palestinian woman released from regime’s prisons revealed the fate of seven others. The woman said she witnessed their execution in the prison’s dormitory.
The Palestinian Camps Network News Union has published the names of the seven Palestinian women killed under torture: Islam Ammar (25) and Nasreen Mahmoud Jaber (19) of Yarmouk refugee camp; Huda Hamdan (19) of at-Tadamon neighborhood; and Rahaf Ismail Ghaith (25), Baisan Abdul Ghani (22), Rana al-Masri (24) from Daraa, and Ibtisam Abu Arafa (24) from Homs.
The Union says it has documented the names of all Palestinian refugees killed under torture in regime's prisons. The total number of Palestinian victims is now 28, identified through the leaked photos, most of them residents of Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp. Newspapers inside the refugee camps have refused to publish pictures of the victims killed under torture, out of respect for families and relatives.
