Two men, identified as Hani Jad’an Amer and Madin Shaker Amer, from Hazm village in the northern suburbs of Suwayda governorate, aged 38 and 28 respectively, were arrested on July 16, 2023, at a Syrian regime checkpoint in Homs governorate, while they were traveling towards the Syrian-Lebanese borders to cross into Lebanon. They were taken to an undisclosed location.

The arrests were carried out without any court-issued legal warrant being presented. The detainees’ families were not informed of their arrest, while their phones were seized, and they have not been allowed to contact their families or a lawyer.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) is concerned that they may be subjected to torture in detention and may go on to become yet more cases of enforced disappearance, with 85 percent of all those detained falling into this category.

We call for the provision of both material and moral reparations for Hani, Shaker, and all other victims of such detentions and for their families, and call on all parties to put an end to all arbitrary detentions whose only purpose is to spread mass fear and extort people.
We also call on the regime to reveal the fate of thousands of people forcibly disappeared in its detention centers. We are seriously concerned about their fates.
