Syrian regime arrested two civilians in al Ghariya town in Daraa suburbs on November 26

Two civilians, named as Yousef Nasallah and Ali al Shqeiti, from al Karak al Sharqi village in the eastern suburbs of Daraa governorate, were both arrested by the military security personnel of the Syrian regime forces in al Ghariya al Sharqiya town in the eastern suburbs of the governorate on November 26, and took them to a detention center in Damascus city.
The arrests were conducted without any legal arrest warrants being issued by a court, with no members of the detainees’ families being informed of their arrests or whereabouts, and with the phones of those detained civilians 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 all detained persons.
SNHR can confirm that at least 130,689 Syrian citizens are still detained or forcibly disappeared in the regime’s detention centers, constituting a grave threat to the detainees’ wellbeing, given the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
