On the World Day Against Human Trafficking, More Than 1750 Syrian Civilians Have Been trafficked within the Syrian territory, on the border with Turkey, and at the sea

The Syrian citizens barely survive a death under the weight of the military operations, the Syrian war, and all of what is going on inside the Syrian territory; until they fall victims of human trafficking, whether on the Syrian-Turkish border or outside the borders looking for a safe haven, away from the bloody tragedy they witness on a daily basis in Syria, where more than 1750 Syrians have been victims of human trafficking, we have seen how the Syrian drowned in the sea on their journey to find a refuge in Europe via Turkey or north Africa, as a result of being transported by human traffickers in small boats carrying large numbers of people, we also saw how the Turkish border guards are killing civilians who try to illegally enter Turkey after paying huge amounts of money to human traffickers, and if the international bodies and the United Nations were able to find a political solution or stop the war machine; no victims would have fallen to the merchants of wars, also the practices of regime’s militias or the Turkey-loyal militias of arrest citizens and demanding their families to pay money in exchange for their release, which is a type of human trafficking, also the child labor getting them away of their schools and education and involving them in fighting in the Syrian war like al-Baath children of the regime forces, the children of the Caliphate of the “Islamic State” Organization, and the continued recruitment of children by the Syria Democratic Forces, in addition to forcing some women to work in prostitution networks led by human traffickers either through threats or exploiting their need, also the trade of human organs became very popular in Syria, where we see how a Syrian man sells his organs to make a living, and how the citizens are kidnapped and then they are forced to sell their organs.
We at the Syrian Observatory remain in constant contact with international actors in order to stop all forms of violations against the Syrian citizen, including the case of human trafficking.
