The Gazan slave trade- the situation for ALL women in Gaza is so much worse than you can imagine.
Firas Press has an article on how Gazans are taking advantage of poor Egyptian families. Acting as middlemen, Gazans offer to smuggle underage Egyptian girls through tunnels to Gaza to get married to weathy Gazans. Yes, there are many wealthy Gazans. For this service, they charge $1000. Once the girls come over, they are married as second or third wives to Gaza men who treat them as maids for their extended families. Others are forced into prostitution or to work for drug dealers. One smuggler who was interviewed is getting so wealthy from the slave trade that he has bought a house in Rafah to facilitate the smuggling of more Egyptian girls. The article claims that hundreds of girls have been taken advantage of this way, and they cannot afford to pay to escape back to Egypt.
