Turkey - SMART

A distinguished attorney working in the human rights field said that the Syrian government forces detained dozens of the Syrian refugees returning to Syria from Lebanon at the al-Masnaa border passage in Western Damascus.

Attorney Anwar al-Bonni, president of the Syrian Center for Legal Studies and Research, told SMART that the Syrian government forces detained more than 20 Syrian refugees that returned voluntarily after signing settlement agreements during the past few days.

Al-Bonni said that the Syrian government forces confiscated the detainees' official documents and ID cards and transported them to several security service branches, alleging that the Syrian refugees have to join the compulsory military service, although they returned to Syria after signing a settlement with the government giving them at least six months to complete their papers and to adjust their status.

The Syrian government forces arrested the refugees despite the Syrian government exempted the wanted for the reservist service. On October 9, 2018,  President Bashar al-Assad issued a general amnesty including all youths who evaded military service inside and outside Syria. The amnesty exempted the youths from the penalty  listed in the military penal code

Al-Bonni added that Lebanese authorities were involved in forcing the Syrian refugees residing in camps on Lebanese soil to return to Syria. Lebanese security services, in coordination with the Syrian government, made the Syrian refugees sign allegedly census documents that turned out to be deportation papers, giving the refugees one month to leave Lebanon.

Earlier, the Syrian government forces detained two Syrian men returning from Saudi Arabia through Lebanon to draft them for the compulsory reserve military service.

During the last few months, thousands of Syrian refugees residing in Lebanon, especially in the Beqaa district, returned to Syria, after the Syrian government forces organized campaigns to return the refugees to Syrian government forces-controlled areas in Southern Syria.

The Syrian Center for Legal Studies and Research is a civil, nonprofit organization established in 2004 in Damascus to tend to human rights violations. The organization members are lawyers and human rights activists, and it was registered in Germany in 2015.
