A breakdown shows at least 3,840 killed in Syrian bombardments of Palestinian refugee camps and in Bashar Assad’s detention and interrogation centers which are notorious for their brutality. A second list reports that the fate of 1,682 Palestinians is unknown. Some may be still be hidden away in Syrian prisons.
