A Palestinian has been tortured to death in a Syrian regime prison every single day of this month so far. Yarmouk has been under a complete siege for over 400 days, a drought manufactured by the regime taunts it daily while what is left of its inhabitants remain trapped with no medical aid or basic necessities. Over 170 people have starved to death in Yarmouk, thousands of others were slaughtered by different means. 5000 homes have been demolished. 1,500 children are now orphans. Yarmouk, the capital of the diaspora, is gone. It has been erased.

Overall, 2454 Palestinian deaths have been documented. And 240 Palestinians of those dead have died by torture.

So far in the month of August, a Palestinian has been tormented to death every single day. Every single day.
