A civilian man, identified as 27-year-old Ahmad Mohammad al-Saqar from Nawa city in western rural Daraa governorate, was arrested on February 8, 2024, by Syrian regime forces at Nasib Border Crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian borders in southern Daraa governorate, while returning to Syria from Jordan. Ahmad was then taken to the Syrian regime’s Military Security Intelligence Directorate branch in Daraa city.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) notes that the arrest was carried out without any court-issued legal warrant being presented. Ahmad’s family was not informed of his arrest, while his phone was seized, and he has not been allowed to contact his family or a lawyer since then.

SNHR is concerned that he may be subjected to torture in detention and may go on to become yet another forcibly disappeared person, with 85 percent of all those detained falling into this category.

We call for the provision of both material and moral reparations for Nagham 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.
