Syrian families demand information about missing relatives

August 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Relatives of missing Syrians have staged a sit-in, outside the Ministry of the Interior.

They want to know what has happened to more than 1000 missing in Lebanon. They are demanding that Syrian officials ask Lebanon to investigate.

It follows a request by Lebanese families to learn the fate of their loved-ones, missing in Syria.

    Syria was not ‘in control’ of Lebanon during the civil war. And when the war ended, most militia (except one!) were only forced to lay down their arms, not disband. They never fell under the ‘control’ of Syria, even during the years of peace.

    Even so, most of the Syrians captured by militia were probably killed during the war.
