A Twitter tag has called on the Turkish authorities to stop trafficking Syrian refugee women in Turkey by exploiting their circumstances and forcing them to marry.

The participants in the hashtag demanded the intervention of human rights organizations to stop the Turkish trafficking in Syrian women.

 Since the start of the war in Syria, millions of Syrians have sought refuge in neighboring countries, but most have chosen Turkey forced by the scourge of war.

Turkey began waving the refugee card to Europe for aid, but it used Syrian women and even children to be trafficked.

Soon, the Turkish authorities, demonstrating sympathy and support for the refugees, revealed the other side, by exploiting them internally and externally, especially women, until the outbreak of Twitter revolution, all of which carried the label #Turkey_Trade_Syrian women.

Several international media reports have spoken of this issue for years, such as a 2017 Times report and other 2016 World Press reports.

All reports speak of exploiting and marrying Syrian women in a manner similar to the sale process. German reports also spoke of the exploitation of children and minors.

The Erdogan government, which has received billions of dollars in return for refugees, has begun deporting those who are no longer in need and keeping those who can be exploited for maximum gains, whether political, economic or even personal.
