Stop Organ Harvesting of Refugees in Egypt

Egyptian Bedouin smugglers are reportedly killing African migrants for their organs. The Bedouins are drugging migrants who cannot pay their high smuggling fees into Israel, opening them up, harvesting their organs, and then leaving them to die in the Sinai.

According to The Jerusalem Post, the Al-Arish-based New Generation Foundation for Human Rights and the EveryOne Group from Italy have found corpses missing organs dumped in wells in the Sinai. They have also photographed bodies in the El-Arish morgue with scars consistent with organ removal.

The Jerusalem Post refers to a CNN report quoting a source that says that mobile clinics with advanced equipment come from a private hospital in Cairo and conduct examinations on the migrants to determine which would be the best sources for healthy organs. Then the surgery is performed on the spot in the middle of the desert.

Bedouin tribes stand accused of enslaving and torturing refugees who can't pay extortion money. Activists say organs are taken from refugees while they're still alive. Corneas, livers and kidneys are reportedly among the most sought-after organs.

Please don't let the Bedouin tribes continue killing refugees and trafficking organs!
