Syrian regime forces arrested two civilians in Damascus city on July 25

Talal Hamad al Shahin and Saher Qasem al Owdeh al Sabrouji, from Jileen town in the western suburbs of Daraa governorate, were arrested by Syrian regime forces on July 25, 2020, while they were passing through a checkpoint in Damascus city and taken to an undisclosed location.
The arrests were conducted without any legal arrest warrants being issued by a court, and no members of the detainees’ families were informed of their arrest, with the phones of those arrested being confiscated, preventing them from contacting their families or lawyers. SNHR fears that they will be subjected to torture and ultimately classified as forcibly ‘disappeared’ like approximately 85 percent of those detained people.
