“156 abductees are being held behind bars in Alsaleh prison, used to be a housing zone before the militia turned it into large incarceration,” said the statement.

It called on the UN to play its moral part in finding an urgent solution to put an end to the suffering of these abductees and forcibly disappeared, demanding an immediate release of them.
