This report looks at human rights in Syria during two decades of rule by President Hafez Asad, and it also considers the human rights practices of Asad's predecessors. The people of Syria have for years been subjected to continuous repression. Violence reached a peak in the early 1980s when Asad's Ba'thist regime crushed its opposition, killing at least ten thousand citizens and jailing thousands more. Today, despite gestures of liberalization, at least 7,500 political prisoners are currently held and persecution of the country's minorities - notably Jews, Palestinians, and Kurds - is rampant. Based largely on confidential interviews with Syrian emigres, this book presents Syria's human rights record.
