SNHR calls on Jordanian authorities not to deport the journalist Ibrahim Awad to Syria

The Syrian Network for Human Rights called on the Jordanian authorities not to forcibly deport journalist Ibrahim Awad to Syria, because it is an unsafe country.

The Syrian Network said in a statement yesterday, Sunday, that Ibrahim Awad is a journalist opposed to the Assad regime, and returning him to regime-controlled areas means “torturing him and forcibly disappearing him and poses a real threat to his life.”

The network clarified that the journalist “Awad” is considered a Syrian refugee, and the Independent International Commission of Inquiry of the United Nations confirmed in its last report in September 2021 that Syria as a whole is an unsafe country for the return of refugees.

Jordanian authorities arrested journalist Ibrahim Awwad on the 18th of this month at his home in the capital, Amman, and placed him under house arrest in the Azraq camp for Syrian refugees in order to deport him to Syria.

And “Ibrahim Awad,” from the town of Muzayrib in the western countryside of Daraa, which was subjected at the end of September 2021 to the Assad regime according to the agreement concluded between representatives of the regime and dignitaries of the region under Russian auspices. He was born in 1989, is married with two children, and is a student at the Faculty of Information in Arabic Open University.
