War casualties: Syrian girls bought for sexual pleasure by wealthy old Saudis

BEIRUT, Lebanon (WND) – Rich Saudi Arabian men – some of whom are closely associated with the Saudi royal family – have been purchasing for their sexual pleasure Syrian girls and young women from among the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war conflict to Lebanon and Jordan, evidence suggests, according to report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Most of the Saudis suspected of such atrocities are in their 60s and 70s. When they tire of the girls, these Saudi men often hand them off to other men, or the girls somehow just disappear, witnesses say.

“They come into Lebanon and Jordan and go to the Syrian refugee camps where the Syrian families there have nothing,” one Lebanese source said. “The Saudis then offer $200 for girls aged nine to 14 years and take them from their families. Because the families are so desperate for money, they give in to the temptation.”

Local Lebanese sources say that it is the Sunni Saudi men who make such overtures. Shiite Iranian men do not engage in such activities. However, Qatari men reportedly also have engaged in such activities with the young Syrian girls, but less so than the Saudi men.

Similarly, rich Saudi men will come into Syria, approach a family with a young woman and offer as much as $250,000. They then take her back to Saudi Arabia where they then will share her with other men once the purchaser has become tired of her.

“Given the influence the United States has over Saudi Arabia, why hasn’t your president confronted the Saudis about this?” one Syrian asked. “Sometimes, the girls are returned to their families, but they won’t have a future” in a society that protects girls and young women who later want to get married.

Sources say that the Saudis are especially fond of the Syrian girls because they speak Arabic and are attractive. [...]

“This is going on at every Syrian refugee camp,” one source said.
