Part 2: Detrimental Conditions inside Syria
According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, at least 1,916 returnees have been arrested by security forces, among which 784 remain detained and 15 have died under torture, as of August 2019. Some of these returnees, among them women, were reportedly subject to forced military conscription and repeated detainments.
