Detention centers in Syria, such as civilian jails and security branch headquarters, are now unable to accommodate the large number of detainees, which exceeded 225 thousand. The Syrian regime has thus turned a number of schools, sports stadiums, and buildings into secret prisons. However, these too are no longer sufficient for the number of detainees, which has been increasing daily since the start of the Syrian revolution in 2011, so Bashar al-Assad's regime started transforming large areas of land into detention camps.
Among these centers is the notorious Jurin prison and camp. Testimonies given by women who survived this prison documented how "sexual slavery" is practiced there as a weapon of war, to destroy anyone who opposes the Syrian regime.

When a Syrian prison guard tossed him into a dimly-lit room, the inmate Abdo was surprised to find himself standing ankle-deep in what appeared to be salt.
On that day in the winter of 2017, the terrified young man had already been locked up for two years in war-torn Syria's largest and most notorious prison, Sednaya.
Having been largely deprived of salt all that time in his meagre prison rations, he brought a handful of the coarse white crystals to his mouth with relish.
Moments later came the second, grisly, surprise: as a barefoot Abdo was treading gingerly across the room, he stumbled on a corpse, emaciated and half-buried in the salt.
Abdo soon found another two bodies, partially dehydrated by the mineral.
He had been thrown into what Syrian inmates call "salt rooms" -- primitive mortuaries designed to preserve bodies in the absence of refrigerated morgues.

On 10 September 2011, the family of Ghiath Matar received the body of their son who was arrested by the security forces on 6 September 2011. His body was mutilated and covered with signs of torture, according to a report in Arabic by the Syrian Human Rights Committee entitled "Syria - A dark record in cases of torture".
Ghiath Matar was an activist from Darayya who participated in organizing demonstrations calling for freedom since the beginning of the Syrian revolution in 2011. He was famous for providing water, flowers and olive branches for security officers and soldiers during demonstrations. Matar was also known for his peaceful and nonviolent struggle and his "martyrdom" came as a great shock. After many ambassadors attended Matar's funeral processions, the Syrian regime was enraged; regime forces waited for mourners to leave and fired shots and tear gas to disperse them, according to the BBC, Al-Jazeera and Al-Hewar al-Motamadden.
A week after Matar's death, his son, named after him, was born, according to Geroun Net.

Her voice falls slowly
Down the basement stairs
She remains in pain, in the interrogation room
Her voice falls slowly
Down the basement stairs
She remains in pain, in the interrogation room
And I fall
I fall slowly
There's a blanket
Carried by two people
Who lose the road
Are we on it, or is she?
Her voice
Her tired voice shakes my body
My tired body shakes her voice
I ask which road to take
It was neither a situation, nor a description
But I called her with many names
The echo of wings flapping around me
Razan, Samira... Razan, Samira... Razan, Samira
Ahhh!
A place is not narrowed to its bearer, if the place allows it
A room in a torture room, in the Palestine Branch
Was it too narrow for them?
Was it too narrow for them?
Her voice is heard from the free valley of Douma
Her voice is heard from behind the bars
Was it too narrow for them?
For all of them

The 48-page report, which provides details on a large number of enforced disappearance incidents, as well as testimonies from victims’ families, reveals that the phenomenon of enforced disappearance in Syria is organically linked to the phenomenon of arbitrary arrest, with most of those subjected to arbitrary detention going on to be classified as forcibly disappeared. The report adds that the Syrian regime has targeted participants in political demonstrations against its rule with widespread arbitrary arrests since the early days of the popular uprising in March 2011, and has systematically used enforced disappearance as one of its most notorious tools of repression and terrorism aimed at crushing and destroying political opponents simply for expressing their opinion; the regime has also harnessed the capabilities of the security services and its tens of thousands of personnel to this end.
The report explains that the first years of the mass uprising saw the highest percentage of enforced disappearances because the demonstrations were taking place intensively, and within areas under the Syrian regime’s control, with the massive scale of the arrests and disappearances making the Syrian regime the worst perpetrator globally in the twenty-first century in terms of forcibly disappearing its citizens. The report further adds that the fate of the disappeared persons in al Tadamun neighborhood in Damascus is a stark example of the killing and execution that may have been the fate of thousands of persons ‘disappeared’ by Syrian regime forces even before they could be taken to detention centers.

On 20 August 2012, the Syrian regime's forces launched a military campaign against the city of Darayya accompanied by a violent bombing after besieging it and cutting off its electricity and means of communication. The regime's forces committed many massacres during their invasion, the biggest of which was on 25 August 2012 when they besieged Suleiman Addarani Mosque, where many residents were hiding from the shelling, then killed everyone in it. Nearly 700 people were killed during the massacre, according to Darayya's local council.

During a 72-hour window between 24-26 August, Government and affiliated forces engaged in a massacre, killing men, women and children. Witnesses reported that individuals and entire families were rounded up before being shot and killed at close range in their homes and in building basements. The largest such incident was committed in the Al-Saqqa building, in which 80 people were executed, including elderly men, women and children. At the Zardeh intersection, from which civilians were attempting to flee Daraya, 40-55 civilians, including women and children, were stripped of their belongings and killed. Civilians were also killed by sniper fire across the town, including by snipers firing at people inside their own homes.
By the end of the week, Government and allied forces murdered over 700 people in Daraya. 514 have been documented by name, including at least 36 women and 63 children, while the remaining corpses were unidentified. An additional 153 residents were recorded by activists as detained (including at least three boys), and 86 as missing (including at least five children). It is estimated that these numbers are much higher.
This report records the atrocities perpetrated in Daraya based on the testimony of witnesses and victims, thereby memorializing their accounts and maintaining a record for posterity. It also showcases that despite the passage of ten years and the collection of substantial evidence, accountability and justice continue to elude the people of Daraya. Despite their disappointment in the international system, witnesses provided their testimony, recounting the heinous crimes committed in Daraya by their own Government, based on their belief that their story—their truth—is not only worthy of documentation, but may one day assist in bringing justice and accountability.

This report highlights the practice of enforced disappearances of hundreds of people in Deir Ezzor governorate. The report seeks to answer questions about those involved in enforced disappearances, the efforts of the relatives of those who forcibly disappeared to know their children’s fate, and the challenges they face. This report concludes with many findings related to the enforced disappearance in Deir Ezzor, including the presence of the so-called “brokers”, who are a group of people playing the intermediary role between the families of the disappeared and security officials from different conflict parties in exchange of tremendous amounts of money, that does not often lead to knowing the fate of the forcibly disappeared.
The report highlighted two main themes: The first is the most likely responsible parties for the enforced disappearances in Deir Ezzor, and the second is the efforts of the families of those forcibly disappeared to know the fate of their children.

This Guide begins with an explanation of the INTERPOL system,
and Syria’s position and powers within it. It then provides an analysis as to how to act:
In urgent situations involving arrest and detention, (including providing useful checklists that can be followed verbatim);
In non-urgent situations where an individual is travelling to certain
countries; and when an individual suspects or identifies that a Red Notice has been issued against them. Where relevant, the Guide will mention case studies from other contexts.
This Guide aims to provide a resource for those looking for a practical way when finding themselves in the above situations. This is a step-by-step Guide divided into specific sections contingent upon the situation they find themselves in and how to deal with it in the most efficient way possible.
The guidance set out here does not constitute legal advice and is for general information purposes only. It should not be relied upon as legal advice as each individual case is different. Any person who is believed to be subject to a domestic or international arrest warrant should seek independent legal advice in respect of their case.

Be careful, and concentrate
The joy in this world is killing me
Captives are still in a cell
The freedom that I live
Broken and humiliated
You are living your life but there are people who are dying in the cell
My hope bleeds out and a voice roars in my head
Die, die, die...
The voice of the cold rises and eats away at my bones
Forget it, you'll never see the light
The long nights and the smell of death become a friend in this cell
O Lord, how can you watch? The world is getting narrower
The cold devours my body
My body is crouched together
I am cold!
The cold turns into heat
Due to the blows it becomes a fire
Sleeping hungry, broke my ribs
My life got to be like water, trying to ascend
One day my friend was martyred in my hands and I prayed for him
To this day, his face haunts me
Cold and fear fill my spirit
Hunger and torment block the way
Where can I go?
"Go to the grave!"
In this world there is no peace, no happiness, no security
And now I live outside
My feeling is dead and clouded
Ghosts of the past tug at me and the silence spreads in my head
Stop!
Reality is mocking us
When a revolutionist turns a page
He searches for a new life, where he could write a happy ending
Now, I am outside, I live my life with a full fridge
Forget it! Forget it!
I can't get rid of the moment when the jailer spat in my food
And I kept eating like an animal, without pride, but defeat
All my tears are worthless, but with the help of God I live in a state of spiritual peace
I saw torture until my hair turned gray
My friends did not die of starvation, they died from oppression

The 45-page report includes details of a wide range of incidents of torture and testimonies of survivors of detention and torture, as well as deaths due to torture, that we have documented over the past year, since June 26, 2021. The report notes torture, prohibited in the harshest terms in international law, continues to be widely practiced in Syria against political dissidents or military opponents, among the parties to the conflict, or by the controlling forces against civilian citizens of the society that they govern, with the aim of extending their control, denying fundamental human rights, and suppressing any dissent or exercising of democracy. The report adds that the process of arresting people in Syria is in itself a form of torture because it takes place without presenting any judicial arrest warrant, which is a common practice by the parties to the conflict and the controlling forces and leads inevitably to other types of torture. The report also confirms that the vast majority of detainees go on to be classified as forcibly disappeared, with enforced disappearance also being among the cruelest forms of torture.

"Prison Without Bars", which is the fruit of cooperation between Caesar Families Association (CFA) and the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM), with the support of Watch Impunity (IW), displays violations of arbitrary detention and enforced disappearance related to torture that leads to death, or ends with execution either outside the law or through summary procedures, or keeps the victims missing. It also examines those violations’ impact on the families of the victims, by working with a number of families who are members of the Caesar Families Association, whose loved ones’ identities were documented by the Association in the photos smuggled by Caesar in 2014. This report provides a picture of the complex, continuous and extended violation that affects the majority of Syrian society.
According to the lowest estimated numbers of missing persons in Syria, 100,000 persons have gone missing during the past ten years, i.e. within 3650 days. Approximately 30 victims have been documented as missing persons daily. Those are not the final numbers of the victims of the complex violations, excess of violence and denial of basic rights, the right to life, physical safety and knowledge of the truth, and others, that are primarily practiced by the government.

On 30 April 2022, Bashar al-Assad issued Legislative Decree No.7 which would grant general amnesty for terrorist crimes committed before the date of the decree. The decree would not include crimes that caused the death of another human being.
The implementation of this decree began with the release of a number of detainees, as crowds of hundreds of families gathered and waited for their detained sons.
This comes in light of a deliberate chaos caused by the Syrian regime, as no lists containing numbers or names of those released were issued by the Ministry of Justice, which is responsible for the implementation of the decree. In addition, the ministry did not issue any lists of names of those who will not be covered by the decree, or those who were martyred in the regime’s prisons and whose death has not yet been announced.
And while families of survivors shared pictures of their released sons on social media, the families of detainees whose fate remains unknown shared pictures of their missing sons, waiting for any information about their place of detention, or any news stating whether they are alive, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Jawab, the Syrian Council of Male and Female Detainees, the Facebook page "We want the detainees", CNN, DW Arabic, AFP, Le Monde, the text of the decree published on SANA News Agency, Enab Baladi, Al Hurra, and Al-Modon.

During the first ten days following the issuance of Amnesty Decree 7/2022, from May 1-11, 2022, the report documents the release of around 476 people from various civil and military prisons and security branches in the Syrian governorates, including 55 women and 13 people who were children when they were arrested.
In addition, at least 98 of the 476 released people had settled their security status prior to their arrest and been given a supposed guarantee according to the terms of these settlements that they would not be persecuted by regime security authorities; eighteen of those released, including two women, had been refugees or otherwise living outside Syria and were arrested on their return to the country, while at least 12, including three women, were Palestinian refugees.

Granting amnesty to detainees is not an act of kindness by the dog Bashar
Where are the rest of the detainees? Where are the disappeared?
Can we forget what they are going through in the prisons of the criminal Bashar al-Assad

On 30 April 2022, Bashar al-Assad issued Legislative Decree No.7 which would grant general amnesty for terrorist crimes committed before the date of the decree. The decree would not include crimes that caused the death of another human being.
The implementation of this decree began with the release of a number of detainees, as crowds of hundreds of families gathered and waited for their detained sons.
This comes in light of a deliberate chaos caused by the Syrian regime, as no lists containing numbers or names of those released were issued by the Ministry of Justice, which is responsible for the implementation of the decree. In addition, the ministry did not issue any lists of names of those who will not be covered by the decree, or those who were martyred in the regime’s prisons and whose death has not yet been announced.
And while families of survivors shared pictures of their released sons on social media, the families of detainees whose fate remains unknown shared pictures of their missing sons, waiting for any information about their place of detention, or any news stating whether they are alive, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Jawab, the Syrian Council of Male and Female Detainees, the Facebook page "We want the detainees", CNN, DW Arabic, AFP, Le Monde, the text of the decree published on SANA News Agency, Enab Baladi, Al Hurra, and Al-Modon.

Activists on social media and Twitter shared the hashtag #TadamonMassacre, after the publication of an investigation titled "Tadamon offerings" on the website of Al-Jumhuriya, and a video report on the investigation, published by the British newspaper The Guardian, on 27 April 27 2022. A leaked video that was widely spread, showed two members of Al-Mintaqa (district) Branch of the Syrian Military Intelligence Service, known as Branch 227, executing civilians, including women and children, throwing them in a big pit and then burning them, in the neighborhood of Tadamon, south of the capital, Damascus.
The date of this mass massacre, during which 41 civilians were killed according to the investigation, dates back to 16 April 2013. It was discovered by a new recruit in one of the security militias affiliated with the Assad regime, as he was browsing the contents of a computer and found horrific videos.
It is worth noting that this massacre is not the only one that has been uncovered. The investigation confirmed that Al-Mintaqa Branch, Branch 227, killed more than 280 civilians in the same way; they were taken to an isolated neighborhood in Damascus and were executed one by one in mass graves that had been prepared in advance. According the investigation published in Arabic on Al-Jumhuriya, the Guardian's report, The Levant, Syrian Press Center, BBC, The New Arab, Al-Quds Al-Arabi, Al-Arab, Arabi 21, Noon Post, Euronews, and Enab Baladi.
