Syria's Law 10, which seeks to earmark real estate development zones for reconstruction, is poised to pave the way for sweeping property confiscation across various areas in the war-torn country, Human Rights Watch said.According to the law, people who do not appear on the list but own property in the redevelopment zone are to be notified.However, the law does specify how these owners will be identified and contacted for notification. This, HRW claims, is where displaced Syrians and the families of missing persons will be penalized.
