There remain many prisons and interrogation centres throughout the country which are run in a non-centralised manner. Each security force supervises its own detention centres, to the extent that the prisoners of the Military Intelligence in Sednaya prison are kept by a special force, and are treated differently from those who are supervised by the State Security Force.
According to a previous report published by the SHRC, more than 14 prisons and 16 Detention and Interrogation Centres in Damascus and Aleppo, the most famous of which is Sednaya, Adra, Qutna, Kafr Sousa, Palestine Branch Centre, Customs Branch and Air Force Intelligence Branch in Damascus and Military Intelligence Branch, State Security and Political Branch in Aleppo.
These prisons and branches all house severely depleted facilities which are deliberately made to reach this condition, in an effort to pile the suffering of the detainees. Obviously these conditions help in spreading illness and disease amongst the detainees.
