Abdullah Urges Germany to Take Action Following Amnesty’s Report on Saydnaya Prison

Head of the Syrian Coalition’s foreign mission in Germany Bassam Abdullah said that the restoration of peace and the eradication of terrorism in Syria cannot be achieved without a genuine political transition. He described political transition as crucial to ending Assad’s dictatorial rule and allowing the Syrian people to have free elections and a democratic government.

In a letter to the German government urging it to assume its political and moral responsibilities towards the atrocities taking place in the prisons of the Assad regime, Abdullah pointed out that “the fear of death under torture and execution in Assad’s prisons is the main reason why many Syrians are fleeing their country.”

Abdullah’s letter came after Amnesty International has said that the Assad regime hanged to death as many as 13,000 detainees in Saydnaya Prison near Damascus in a report the rights group released on Monday.

On behalf of all Syrian refugees in Germany, Abdullah called upon the German government to take action to stop the crimes against humanity the Assad regime is committing in Syria. He also called for “urgently taking a clear position about Amnesty’s report and to push for the introduction of international monitors to investigate the conditions in the prisons of the Assad regime.”

Abdullah said that the most heinous crimes are being carried out in Saydnaya Prison and other five regime prisons in Syria, noting that detainees are subjected to severe torture and inhumane treatment. The Assad regime and its allies also besiege entire towns and villages to starve the civilian population. They are destroying houses over the heads of civilians using barrel bombs and constant aerial bombardment.

The Assad regime did not hesitate to use chemical weapons and other internationally forbidden weapons against the Syrian people, Abdulah said, adding that the Assad regime also did not show the slightest respect for all truces or UN resolutions and initiatives. All these crimes have so far gone unpunished by the international community, Abdullah added.

Abdullah said that the Assad regime has not yet shown any signs that it is going to negotiate in good faith in the upcoming Geneva negotiations, warning that the Assad regime will use these negotiations to buy time and advance on the ground through the brutal war it is waging on the Syrian people.

East Jerusalem teen tells Ma’an about medical negligence he faced in Israeli prisons


JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — A 17-year-old former prisoner from the Wadi al-Joz neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem, who was released this week from Israeli custody after over a year in prison, detailed the account of his detention to Ma’an on Friday, saying he was “on the verge of death” in Israel’s Megiddo prison.Majd Nadir Saida told Ma’an of the day he was detained, Sept. 30, 2015, saying “six undercover Israeli officers attacked me near my house, beating me violently and firing gunshots into the air to prevent anyone from helping me.”

Shortly after, Israeli forces took the teenager — who was 15 at the time — to Israel’s “Oz” police station in the Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood of East Jerusalem, and then to the Russian Compound interrogation center.
Saida told Ma’an he sustained bruises and cuts on his head, neck, and face, during the violent detention.The teenager was then taken to Israel’s HaSharon prison before being transferred to Givon prison, which he says was a prison for African migrants and asylum seekers who enter Israel without proper documentation.
“The living conditions in Givon prison were very bad and very hard. I stayed there for two months and the wardens used to storm the prisoners’ rooms violently every week for inspection, beating us every time.”He was then moved to Megiddo prison.My “tragedy”, he said, started in April 2016 when I started to feel severe abdominal pains which lasted for a week. “A doctor at Megiddo prison checked me and gave me standard painkillers. However, pains increased day after day and were more severe than I can describe. One day the doctor checked me and asked me to drink a Coke so he can diagnose the cause of pain,” Saida said.“After I drank the Coke at the doctor’s request, I couldn’t sleep due to the severe pains and tiredness I felt.”
Saida told Ma’an that his pains reached such a severe point that his fellow prisoners shouted at the Israeli guards to bring a doctor, who only came after Saida’s cellmates continued shouting.
The doctor checked Saida through a small window in the room’s door without opening the door.
“He just took my temperature and asked me to drink water.”
An hour later wardens opened his room and moved him to another room with older prisoners. “The next day I was taken to Afula prison hospital in a police vehicle. Both my hands and feet were cuffed.”Doctors decided that Saida urgently needed surgery on his appendix, saying that it had been left untreated and was perforated “spilling poisonous and infectious material into the abdomen.”
“I stayed 22 days in hospital with both my hands and feet tied. Whenever I needed to go to the toilet, I had to wait half an hour until they obtained approval from the prison manager,” Saida said, pointing out that he also needed approval to take a shower, a process that would take about one hour and required the presence of an officer inside the room while he showered, and another outside.
Saida said suffered from severe weight loss and weighed only 37 kilograms (81 pounds) after his stay in the hospital.
His father Nadir told Ma’an that a doctor from the Afula hospital called him for permission to operate on Majd, which was the first time he learned that his son was even sick in the first place.
“I asked to go to the hospital myself, but the doctor told me that if I don’t approve the surgery I would see my son as a dead body, so I approved the surgery on the phone,” Nidal said.
Saida’s mother and uncle were able to visit him after the surgery and stay with him for an hour, his father said, highlighting that the two had to wait for hours before being allowed to see Majd.”I visited him three times at Afula hospital, once every week, ” Saida’s mother said, saying that Israeli officers prevented her from actually touching or getting close to her son.Rights groups have widely condemned Israel for its medical negligence of Palestinians in its prisons, which Addameer has called a “deliberate policy of neglect.”In August, a number of Palestinian rights organizations established a committee to follow the cases of Palestinians in poor health being held in Israeli prisons.Rights groups have accused the Israel Prison Service (IPS) of practicing a policy of medical neglect on Palestinian prisoners, leading to at least 17 Palestinian prisoners dying in Israeli custody as a direct result of medical negligence from the beginning of the Second Intifada in 2000 until 2008, according to prisoners’ rights group Addameer.In addition to deliberate medical negligence, Addameer has cited the environment in Israeli prisons, which is reportedly far below international standards, the tendency for the Israeli prison administration to ignore their responsibility for the well being of Palestinian prisoners, and the overcrowding in Israeli prisons as all factors that adversely impact the health of Palestinians in Israeli custody.
Prisoners’ rights group Addameer has reported that 6,000 Palestinians are curently being held in Israeli prison, according to their January statistics.

Morocco’s Independence Party leader accuses deep state of liquidating opponents

The head of Morocco’s Istiqlal (Independence) Party, Hamid Chabat, has stirred controversy among political circles in the country after accusing the so-called deep state of committing economic crimes and liquidating political opponents.

In an article published on the party’s website, Chabat also accused what he described as “influential actors” in the state of controlling the judiciary to put pressure on opposition politicians. He said that the same political actors use the media to discredit their opponents and called for an investigation into the sources of the wealth of some senior figures who are listed by America’s Forbes magazine as being among the richest people in the world.

Although Forbes listed King Mohammed VI and the Minister of Agriculture and Fishery, Aziz Akhannouch, who is close to the king, and other billionaires, they do not belong to the world of politics.

Istiqlal Party has issued a statement saying that the article does not represent its official position. It did not, however, challenge the content, although it has removed it from the website.

Settlers attack Palestinians in Hebron

Hundreds of settlers stormed Beit Ummar, located north of Hebron, behaved in a provocative manner.

Dozens of settlers attacked residents in various areas of Hebron yesterday, while large numbers of Israeli forces were deployed in Tulkarem, the occupied West Bank.

According to a correspondent from the Palestinian Information Centre, dozens of settlers attacked Palestinians yesterday afternoon in the Tel Rumeida neighbourhood, in central Hebron. The attacks included abusive language and racist remarks against Arabs.

Media activist in Beit Ummar, Mohammad Ayad Awwad, reported that hundreds of settlers stormed Beit Ummar, located north of Hebron, behaved in a provocative manner.

He added that the settlers were carrying guns and rifles and they set off from inside the Gush Etzion settlement and headed to Thaghrat Al-Shabak, Mount Abu Suda, and Wadi Safa. The group of settlers included a number of school children chanting songs in Hebrew, including: “This is Israel’s land”.

In addition to this, Israel forces raided Kafr Al-Labad, east of Tulkarem, in the context of widespread combing operations yesterday.

Local sources told the Palestinian Information Centre that dozens of Israeli soldiers stormed the village with ground forces and military patrols surrounding it.

The sources also added that the soldiers stationed themselves between the homes of the people and main roads and questioned many Palestinians. They also constructed a military checkpoint on the road between Kafr Al-Labad and Anabta.

Amnesty International Claim On Syria Hangings Lacks Evidence

The media was quick to oversell the story, which was based on the limited testimony of
Syrian rebels.

Screenshot of the coverage of Amnesty's report on alleged abuses at the Saydnaya Prison in Syria.

A report from Amnesty International citing testimony from a handful of rebels and other opposition figures, and claiming a large number of hangings carried out by the Syrian government at a single prison has been quickly accepted by media outlets, and in many cases far overstated, despite a lack of really concrete proof it ever happened.

The report’s figures are based on claims of executions of between 20 and 50 people executed in a week, extrapolated into a 4+ year figure which put between 5,000 and 13,000 people over that period, “assuming the rate remained the same,” an assumption for which they don’t provide any real evidence, since the testimonies are all for very limited periods of time.

This broad 5,000 to 13,000 death toll was not only endorsed by outlets like the Associated Press, but overstated, with the AP taking that fairly wide range, and reporting “at least 13,000” as the death toll, despite it being the absolute maximum in the Amnesty range.

The Syrian government has issued a statement denying the claim, calling it part of a “smear campaign” against them. While Syria often denies things that they actually did, in this case, the lack of evidence makes it difficult to say how many executions might’ve happened.

Palestinian succumbs to gunshot wounds inflicted 3 months ago by Israeli forces


BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – A Palestinian held in Israeli custody succumbed to his wounds on Friday after being shot by Israeli forces in Nov. for allegedly attempting to carry out a stabbing attack.Issa Qaraqe, the head of the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs, told Ma’an that 24-year-old Muhammad al-Jallad (also reported as Muhammad Amr) died in Israeli custody while at the Beilinson Hospital in the city of Petah Tikva in central Israel.Al-Jallad was shot by Israeli forces on Nov. 9, 2016 at the Huwwara military checkpoint in the southern part of the occupied West Bank district of Nablus, Qaraqe said.Israeli authorities claimed that al-Jallad had attempted to stab an Israeli soldier with a screwdriver before Israeli forces opened live fire on him.According to Qaraqe, Israeli forces took al-Jallad into custody at the time and transported him to Beilinson hospital for treatment.Qaraqe added that al-Jallad had also suffered from lymphoma.Al-Jallad became the ninth Palestinian to be killed by Israeli forces this year, with 112 Palestinians killed in 2016, according to Ma’an documentation.Israel has come under repeated criticism for using lethal force on Palestinians when they pose no harm or they could be detained through nonlethal means, with the PLO labeling the deaths “extrajudicial executions.”Israeli rights group B’Tselem has condemned Israeli officials for effectively condoning the killing of Palestinians by Israeli forces and civilians.

Tunisia’s former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his wife, Leila Ben Ali, have been issued new 10-year prison sentences for corruption, part of several sentences issued in absentia since Ben Ali was ousted in 2011.

A court in Tunisia found the couple guilty on Tuesday in a case involving “administrative and financial corruption”, according to Sofiene Sliti, spokesman for the prosecution.

Ben Ali was also sentenced to life imprisonment for his forces’ crackdown on demonstrations during the 2011 revolution where 338 people were killed in clashes.

The court also convicted two other officials who included a former environment minister who was jailed for five years and a ministry official sentenced to three years.

Leila Trabelsi, Leila’s relative, was also sentenced to three years in prison.

When Ben Ali’s 23-year rule came to an end in 2011, during the country’s revolution, the couple fled to Saudi Arabia where they have been living in exile.

Last month, the European Council again extended the freeze on the assets of 48 people, believed to be responsible for the misappropriation of state funds in Tunisia, until 31 January 2018.

The sanctions have been extended since they were first imposed in January 2011 on Ben Ali, his wife and 46 others.

The era of the two-state solution is over, after the Knesset approved a law legitimising settlement blocs, Israeli Minister of Culture and Sport, Miri Regev, said.

The minister told Public Radio Israel yesterday that “the era of the two-state solution has ended.”

The official from the Likud party, headed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said: “We will impose the law on Judea and Samaria [the West Bank] in the event that this it rejected by the Supreme Court.”

Read: Reports: Israel approves construction of 1,162 settlement units in West Bank

She noted that the law was approved “no thanks to the Jewish Home party, but because PM Benjamin Netanyahu wanted it.”

Right-wing party, the Jewish Home, headed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett, had said that the law was approved following its support. This law legitimises thousands of residential settlement units, 53 settlement blocs, and legalises the confiscation of 2,100 acres of Palestinian land in the West Bank.

The Palestinians have said that the implementation of this law would mean the end of the two-state solution.

A number of Arab and Western countries criticised and condemned Israel after the law was approved.

The Palestinians filed a petition with the Supreme Court, the highest judicial authority in Israel, in order to abolish the new law. The court instructed Israel to submit its position on this petition within a month.

Belgian Combatants in Syria: 115 Deaths, 117 Reentries, 163 Potential Returns


Brussels – Official figures obtained by Belgian MP Denis Ducarme and published by Brussels media outlets reported three cases of registered reentries of Belgians who returned from war-torn Syria in 2016.

The Belgians fighters – involved with extremist groups – were two females and one young male. A total of 117 people have successfully returned after engaging in combat in Syria, and are currently in Belgium.

At least 279 people are known to still be in Syria, of which 115 are suspected to have been killed, leaving 163 who might return at any given time.

More so, Belgian authorities on Thursday released 11 people arrested in a series of anti-terror raids targeting extremists who have returned from Syria, federal prosecutors said according to AFP.

The arrests took place overnight Tuesday when police searched nine houses in various areas of Brussels including Molenbeek, the district that was home to several of those involved in the Paris and Brussels attacks.

“Everybody has been released after thorough questioning,” the federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement, giving no other details.

Prosecutors had said Wednesday the 11 had been arrested as part of a probe into the “issue of possible returning Syria fighters,” adding no weapons or explosives had been found in the operations.

They said the case was completely separate from the probes into the March 22, 2016 Brussels attacks and the November 13, 2015 Paris attacks, which investigators say were hatched by the same Brussels-based terror cell.

Belgium has been on high alert since last March, when three suicide bombers attacked Brussels’ Zaventem airport and its metro system, killing 32.

Several people have been jailed in Belgium in recent years for recruiting extremists to fight for the terror group ISIS in Syria.

Justice for Palestine now – end European complicity! A call from organizations throughout Europe

Samidoun is one of over 250 signatories to the following statement, coordinated by the European Coordination of Committees and Associations for Palestine (ECCP)

A call from organizations throughout Europe

2017 marks:

  • 100 years since the « Balfour Declaration » of 1917, through which the British government unilaterally promised the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine;
  • 70 years since the partition plan of Palestine, adopted by the UN in 1947, which resulted in the 1948 Nakba, the demolition of more than 530 Palestinian villages and the expulsion of 750 000 Palestinians from their homeland, thus a process of ethnic cleansing;
  • 50 years since the beginning of Israel’s occupation in 1967 of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights, and an ongoing process of colonization and prolonged occupation by the State of Israel.

The continued dispossession of Palestinians of their land and their livelihood, including house demolition, land confiscation and apartheid wall; the denial of their culture and memory; the ten-year Gaza blockade creating severe inhuman conditions along with the recurrent military attacks on its population; the constant repression, resulting presently in over 7000 prisoners including more than 400 children held in military detention; the disastrous plight of Palestinian refugees further worsened by the war in Syria; and the draconian discriminatory laws in Israel itself: these facts, the fruits of over 100 years of denial of the rights of the Palestinian people, can no longer be accepted.

The anniversaries marked by the year 2017 remind us of the degree to which the colonial mindset, the denial of the rights of the Palestinian people, and the refusal to apply international law and UN resolutions lead to disaster.

These dates highlight the responsibility of European and Western countries for the existence of this situation, as well as the powerlessness into which the European Union has trapped itself, as it parades the principles of respect for international law without taking the measures to enforce them.

These dates remind us, also, that the building of peace cannot occur by ignoring the historic facts; and that to recognize History is the responsibility of all parties, first and foremost the Israeli State and people, contrary to the revisionist policy constantly promoted by Israel and pushed to the extreme by its current government. The European States were actors in the colonial system between the two World Wars; they made Palestine carry the consequences of the monstrous genocide of the European Jews by the Nazis; and subsequently they did nothing to require that Israel respect UN resolutions; they, too, must acknowledge the great responsibility that they bear in the tragedy endured by the Palestinian people today.

We call upon the EU and European States:

  • to make 2017 the year that the rights of the Palestinian people become a reality, in a binding timetable: the right to self-determination, the end of the occupation of all the West Bank including East Jerusalem and of the Gaza Strip, the right to equality for all citizens of Israel, and the right of return for all Palestinian refugees in the way of their choosing;
  • to cease all complicity with continued settlement activity and the myriad ways that Israel violates international law; and to demand an immediate end of the blockade of the Gaza Strip, and freedom of movement for Palestinians;
  • to take binding measures vis-à-vis the State of Israel, so long as it continues to violate international and human rights law, including the suspension of the EU’s Association Agreement with Israel until Israel complies with international law; to begin with, military and security cooperation – poorly concealed within several projects of the Horizon 2020 program – must be suspended immediately.

We, the undersigned, European civil society organizations, associations, political parties, and unions, solemnly reaffirm that in 2017, after 100 years of dispossession, denial, and ethnic cleansing, the rights of the Palestinian people must, at last, be respected.

Each with our respective views, we commit to act towards this goal, with the belief that a sustainable peace can only be achieved through enforcement of international law.
