Turkey tied to trafficking organs of injured Syrians: report – Tehran Times

Turkish authorities are engaged in trafficking body organs of injured Syrians that are taken to Turkey for treatment, a report says.

Syria’s official news agency SANA cited a report by Lebanese newspaper Ad-Diyar published on Saturday that Turkish authorities transfer young injured Syrians to certain hospitals in the Turkish cities of Antakya and Iskenderun.

The report added that the Turks leave the injured Syrians alone to die after their body organs are removed in the hospitals. The dead are later sent to the Syrian border region to be buried.

Turkish doctors have confirmed that out of 62,000 injured Syrian civilian and military people who were transported into Turkey, body organs of over 15,600 of them were excised and their bodies were sent back into Syria to be buried, Ad-Diyar stated.
