With the absence of a prospect to a solution , The suffering of Syrians continues on across the country, particularly civilians, In a climate of impunity the country turned to the arena of conflicts going more brutal and monstrous day after day.
Tens of thousands of detainees are in prisons of the Syrian government in cruel and inhuman conditions of detention that lacks the minimum standards that preserve their humanity , so after five years people are either Hidden forcibly(enforced disappearance), detained, missing or dead as a result of torture, hunger or illness.
And others Absent in prisons supervised by factions opposed to the government or radical factions, such as the organization of the Islamic state (ISIS) and they are all just numbers with the the negotiator’s regulation.
The Syrian government and the organization of the Islamic State (ISIS) are using detainees specifically women under different names and purposes, Whether for sex or providing financial revenues.
And while (ISIS) is selling women and Yazidi females in Raqa or Aleppo in human trading markets (as sex slaves) under the name of captives (sabaya) The Syrian government takes large sums of money (bribe) as a price for the freedom of women detainees via powerful members of its various institutions Governmental agencies, the bribe is in exchange for just a piece of information about the place or the forcibly disappeared person’s situation and not actually their release and the family can’t validate the information most of the time.
Last year has seen a dangerous development after the commencement of swapping women detainees at the government’s with weapons of the opposition factions that they are fighting, or to restore something they have lost in some of the battles!

The complexities of the Syrian scene is growing as a result of the so-called war economy, bringing to the scene poor people who rely on the crisis continuing not ending ,as it helps them in their pension. Thousands of young people, both in areas controlled by government forces or controlled by the (ISIS) are facing two choices, either engaging in war with whoever controls the area thus living from the money they earn as fighters or to becoming refugees abroad in the hope of reaching countries that they can survive and earn money, in the (ISIS) in some areas is also evacuating families out of their homes either under the pretext that the house is owned by a relative of theirs wanted by the regulation or because the person wanted is the head of the family himself, What contributes to the further displacement and the tendency to even greater migration. This raises an urgent need to create an economic dimension to any political process, the international community seeks taking to end this holocaust.
On 31 August 2020, Release Me, Urnammu and No Photo Zone made a submission to four United Nations Special Procedures concerning acts of torture, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearances perpetrated by the Syrian authorities and their affiliated forces within the context of the armed conflict taking place in Syria.
