Two Palestinian brothers taking shelter in Daraa province, south of Syria, were subjected to extra-judicial execution by an armed militia affiliated with the Syrian government, a human rights group reported on Saturday.
The Action Group for Palestinians of Syria said the victims are Palestinian brothers Abdullah Abdul Kader Jaber and Malek Abdul Kader Jaber, both residents of Daraa.
The young men were fatally shot, along with a Syrian national, on Thursday January 9, one week after they were kidnapped.
Local sources told AGPS that the victims’ bodies were spotted in Daraa AlBalad. Signs of heavy torture figured all over their bodies.
AGPS has documented the death of over 4,000 Palestinian refugees in Syria, including more than 470 women and girls, since 2011 as a result of war-related incidents. Scores of Palestinian refugees have also been left wounded, including dozens who have undergone limb amputation or eye loss.
