Hama - SMART

On Monday, prisoners in the Central Hama Prison, Central Syria, launched an open hunger strike to protest the Syrian government death sentences against dozens of prisoners.

Days ago, 40 prisoners received notices of their relocation to the Sednaya Central Prison in the Rif Dimashq governorate, Southern Syria, for execution. Among the 40 prisoners are 11 prisoners whom the Syrian government arrested on the background of participating in demonstrations when the Syrian Revolution started in 2011.

A source from the prison emphasized that the strike was observed by all prisoners in the prison's different sections. The prisoners stressed that they will continue the strike until the death sentences are cancelled.

In a statement posted on social media, the prisoners appealed to the Syrian people to intervene to put an end to the prisoners' long years of suffering. The prisoners emphasized that different parties promised them they will intervene, but they did not.

Manhal Na'oum, a Christian prisoner in the Hama Central Prison, delivered a message calling upon the concerned parties to intervene and conduct settlements similar to settlements that took place in other Syrian areas. Kamal Zarifa, an Alawite prisoner, demanded a general or special amnesty that includes the prisoners in the Hama Central Prison. 

On  February 7, 2017, the Amnesty International issued a report titled “Human Slaughterhouse,” revealing that the Syrian government forces hanged 13,000 people in the Sednaya prison, most of them civilians who opposed the Syrian government.
