Chtoura Detention Center -
Syrian Detention Center

Activity Period

Chtoura, Zahle, Bekaa, Lebanon

After a subject is apprehended in Lebanon by Syrian elements, he/she is taken from one detention center to another ending up supposedly in Syria
one of the main stops is Syrian intelligence bureau - Chtoura - Beqaa. Anyone arrested in Lebanon followed systematically the same circuit from his place of abduction to his place of detention. The last two stages, before arriving to Syria, were Anjar and Chtaura in the Bekaa. Before arriving at these two places of detention, the "disappeared" went through the various local and regional sections of the Syrian intelligence services.
