Sources have reported that a young man from Arbin city in eastern Ghouta in Rif Dimashq died under torture in Sednaya military prison, known as the “Slaughterhouse”, after he was detained for nearly three years.

SOHR has documented the death of 47,496 civilians under torture in regime’s prisons since the beginning of the Syrian revolution, all documented by names: 47,094 men and young men, 339 children under the age of eighteen, and 64 women over the age of eighteen.

Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the number of people killed, executed and/or died in regime prisons exceeded 104,000 people.

Over 83% of the total death toll were killed and/or died in these prisons between May 2013 and October 2015. SOHR sources have also confirmed that more than 30,000 detainees were killed in the notorious prison of Sednaya alone, while the second largest percentage of killing occurred in the Air Force Intelligence detention facilities or prisons.
