Returning Refugees Face Grave Abuse

Syrian refugees who returned to Syria between 2017 and 2021 from Lebanon and Jordan faced grave human rights abuses and persecution at the hands of the Syrian government and affiliated militias. Returnees also struggled to survive and meet their basic needs in a country decimated by conflict.

The harrowing accounts of torture, enforced disappearance, and abuse that refugees who went back to Syria endured should make it patently clear that Syria is not safe for returns.

No one will be safe in Syria until they stop the security agencies from terrorizing people.
