Detention Center Jordan
Abdelasie (15 ½) is in Jordan since July 2014. In Syria, he was recruited into a paramilitary group to fight against the regime of Bashar El Assad. He fled the war, and the group, with his mother and sisters. However, in Jordan, he was arrested for belonging to that group. His father is still in Syria as a fighter. His mother is in school at the University of Amman. « Life in prison was difficult at first because as a Syrian, I was isolated from the others. But with time, it is getting better. Now I participate in the activities set up by Tdh. I really like the group games. There are more activities since Tdh is here. Currently I am waiting to be tried. I do not know long it will take. I want to go home and be with my family. »
