Brutal rapes, torture in Syrian prisons

Prisoners are being caged in solitary confinement until being removed for vile 'rape and beatings over several days' 

NEW SHOCK figures have revealed the extent of sexual violence in Syrian jails, where women are being raped and tortured so much guards have to hand out contraceptives.

Women are reportedly being hung from poles on prison ceilings, where they are subjected to horrific assaults over several days.
According to the report by the London School of Economics, justification for the attacks can be as minor as having a picture of a revolutionary flag on their phone.
The findings were published before talks in Geneva, where world leaders hope to reach a political settlement with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
The report claims violence is systematic under the Syrian regime, which has denied normalisation of rape and abuse as a method for interrogation and punishment for both men and women.
In one horrific case, a student and aid worker called Yasmin was brought to a military intelligence centre in Damascus, where officials tore her hijab off and abused her repeatedly.
“This lady is very beautiful,” one of the officers said, before performing a “virginity test” on his victim.
He then said: “She will be humiliated the most.”
According to the Sunday Times, the young student was jailed for 18 months on suspicion of supporting the opposition.
She faced hours of interrogations, including beatings and rape.
Recalling the nightmare assault, Yasmin said: “He laid me down on bed, tied my hands.
He raped me in a painful and harsh way, like a monster. I started crying.
“He said: ‘Are you going to speak? See how strong I am?’ It happened three times.”
Another victim, identified only as Basima, said she was so brutally tortured on her 37thbirthday, prison guards assumed she was dead.
She had been dragged from her cell early on her birthday, and hung from the wall.
She said: “He tied a piece of cloth around my hair and hung me from a tube attached to the wall. It took my whole body weight.”
Her torturers then pulled her legs apart with rope, before sexually assaulting her. They also made her stand on one leg for an hour, before handcuffing her.
She eventually fell unconscious and was taken to hospital.
The 37-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of helping terrorist groups – though she insists she was teaching civilians first aid skills she learned volunteering for the Red Crescent.
She said she spent two months in solitary confinement with no bed, and no light.
She was removed from her room every day to be tortured.
