جب جنين

Among the detention centers that were run by the Syrian armed forces and the Syrian security apparatus, Job Jenin branch, which is connected to a very interesting story, truly stands out. For after the Syrian intelligence seized his house in 1985 and turned it into a proper detention center, Joseph al-Sabbagh was arrested and detained in his own home for two months. And after the withdrawal of the Syrian army from Lebanon in April 2005, the Lebanese army returned the house to its owner again. According to various testimonies, this center was used as a vetting center. As for the prisoners of Job Jenin, they were transferred to Anjar and later to Syria.
