Syrian regime forces arrested a civilian in Dael city in Daraa suburbs on February 25

A man from al Mleiha al Sharqia town in the northeastern suburbs of Daraa governorate, named as Muhammad Walid al Hamidi, was arrested by Syrian regime Air Security personnel in Dael city in the northern suburbs of the governorate on February 25, 2021, and taken to an undisclosed location.
The arrest was conducted without any legal arrest warrant being issued by a court, with no member of Muhamad’s family being informed of his arrest or whereabouts, and with his phone being confiscated, preventing him from contacting his family or a lawyer. SNHR fears that he will be subjected to torture and ultimately classified as forcibly ‘disappeared’, like approximately 85 percent of all detained persons in Syria.
SNHR can confirm that at least 130,758 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.
