Western Media Ignore Palestinian Tragedy in Syria – Khaled Abu Toameh (Gatestone Institute)
The latest reports from Syria reveal that 82 Palestinians died as a result of brutal torture in prisons run by the Syrian government in 2018.
Some 556 Palestinians have been tortured to death in Syrian prisons in the past few years.
According to the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria (AGPS), the real number could be higher; those are just the ones they know about.
The families of the victims are afraid to announce the deaths of their sons and daughters for fear of being targeted by the Syrian authorities.
AGPS says that there are at least 1,711 Palestinians being held in Syrian prisons.
Since the beginning of the civil war in Syria eight years ago, 3,911 Palestinians have been killed.
Where are the international media when those Palestinians are being brutalized?
