Syria: Caught in a regional conflict: Lebanese, Palestinian and Jordanian political detainees in Syria
This document reports on the hundreds of Lebanese, Jordanian and Palestinian nationals who remain in detention as political prisoners in Syria. Most were detained during the Lebanese civil war (1975-90) or the conflict with the PLO during the 1980s. Many were arbitrarily arrested or "disappeared". Amnesty International calls upon the Syrian authorities to review these cases with a view to releasing all those not given prompt and fair trials.
