Thousands of 'disappeared' Syrians killed or jailed in Lebanon

A group of Syrian families have demanded information about their loved ones who have gone missing in Lebanon. There has been no notification of their arrest and they haven't faced trial.

They said that dozens more have been subject to murder, beating, arrests, or robbery.

Where is the Syrian government to defend their case? Or the Lebanese to listen?

Four months ago the Lebanese 'Human Rights' Minister was given a long list of people feared missing or killed in his country. But still, nothing has been done.

It seems Human Rights only extend to one category of people inside Lebanon's borders.

Recently Amnesty International urged the Lebanese security forces to stop the gangs of thugs burning Syrian houses and tents across Lebanon.

But the police are part of the problem. On the day of the embassy attacks in Beirut, officers went to an apartment block north of the city and rounded up every Syrian man - forty in total. The were picked up while the demo was going on. It was condemned by the international community.

The vilification of Syrians continues unhindered.

Thousands of disappeared Syrians killed and jailed in SYRIAN jails.
