DAMASCUS, (PIC)– A statistical report issued, on the occasion of Mother’s Day, by the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria showed that 446 Palestinian refugee women died due to the ongoing war in Syria. Quds Press said that the report on Monday documented names of 75 Palestinian female prisoners held in Syrian jails. The number of Palestinian arrested women is likely to dramatically increase, the report pointed out. It was highlighted in the report that there is a difficulty in collecting data of victims and prisoners in light of the Syrian secrecy in this regard. The Action Group asked international human rights institutions to pressure the Syrian regime in order to release Palestinian refugee women from its jails and to release the names of the arrested women. It also called on all Palestinian parties to prioritize the issue of Palestinian refugee captives in Syrian jails and to work on their immediate release.
