Hassam Abdullah Doursen, a member of the regional committee of the Kurdistan Democratic Party Syria (PDK-S) and of the Kurdish National Council, was abducted on April 1, 2024, by Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) personnel in his home city of al-Malkiya in northern rural Hasaka governorate. He was then taken to an undisclosed location.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) notes that Hassam’s phone was seized from him during the abduction, and he has not been allowed to contact his family. SNHR is concerned that he may be subjected to torture in detention and may go on to become enforced disappearance case, with 85% of all those detained in Syria falling into this category.

We call for the provision of both material and moral reparations for the victims and 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 SDF to reveal the fate of thousands of people forcibly disappeared at its hands.
