"Director-General of the #Syria Coroner’s Office Hossein Noufel disclosed that the body organs of thousands of #Syrian civilians have been sold in the international #blackmarkets over the past six years. “We have accurate information that over 25,000 surgical operations have been conducted in the #refugeecamps of the neighboring countries and in the #terrorist-controlled areas in #Syria since 2011 to take out the body organs of 18,000 #Syrians and sell them in the international black markets,” Dr. Noufel said.
He pointed to the high prices of human body organs in the black markets, and said, “A kidney is sold $10,000 in #Turkey while the same kidney is sold for $1,000 in #Iraq, but in Lebanon and Syria the price of each kidney is $3,000.” Dr. Noufel said that other human body organs such as spleen and cornea are also sold in the black markets.
According to latest reports, the children who have been rescued from the camps of Abdullah Muhammad al-Muhaysini, a senior #alQaeda-linked cleric and the religious leader of Jeish al-Fatah terrorist group, are now threatened with the danger of trafficking their body organs by the terrorists.
