Large, medium and small Saudi companies, retail stores and many cafes announced their boycott of Turkish products, stopping their import, sale and circulation, and providing alternatives to national products and products of brotherly and friendly countries.
The hashtag # Boycott_Products_Campaign issued the highest trend in Saudi Arabia, today, Saturday, as part of a series of hashtags calling for a boycott, which has topped the trend since early October.
The tweeters documented the success of the boycott by publishing videos of removing Turkish products from the shelves of shopping malls and clips of companies that announced their boycott in interaction with the popular boycott campaign for Turkish products.
Among the most prominent companies that announced a boycott are Abdullah Al-Othaim Markets, Al-Watania Markets and Risan Markets in Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah.
In this regard, Al-Watania markets said, “in its Twitter account:” We in the national markets do not sell Turkish products, and we emphasize that we do not deal with any Turkish companies in any field, in solidarity with the popular campaign against the actions of the Turkish government towards our dear country. ”

And she stressed, at the same time, that our leadership, our government and our security are an untouchable red line, directing salutations and respect to the brotherly Turkish people, far from the heinous behavior of their government.
The famous Saudi tweet Bin Awaid published a video clip documenting the boycott of the Risan markets in Medina for Turkish products.
In the clip, signs appeared that the center placed on its front and inside, reading: “It is a patriotic duty that the Resan Center apologizes for selling Turkish products.”

The tweeters interacted with the companies that announced their boycott, thanked them and called for their support, and asked the rest of the companies to quickly join them.
Over the past years, calls for a boycott have been renewed, rejecting Erdogan’s policies, while the people’s boycott began to take a more escalating and organized trend at the beginning of this month.
This came after Ajlan Al-Ajlan, Chairman of the Council of Saudi Chambers and Chairman of the Riyadh Chamber, called on October 2 to “boycott everything that is Turkish, whether on the level of import, investment or tourism.”
On Wednesday, Ajlan renewed his call for a boycott, in a tweet in which he said: “I say it with absolute certainty and clarity: No investment, no import, no tourism, as citizens and businessmen, we will not have any dealings with everything Turkish.”
According to figures quoted by Bloomberg, according to the Saudi Statistics Authority, the value of Saudi imports of Turkish products plunged to $ 9.47 billion in 2019, compared to about $ 12.74 billion in 2015.
Saudi Arabia’s imports during the first 8 months of 2020 fell dramatically to $ 1.91 billion, according to Bloomberg, which confirms the potency of the Turkish product in the Saudi market.
There are many brands of Turkish products that are boycotted, but according to the figures, the majority of the products are for carpets, textiles, chemicals, grains, furniture and steel.
On social media, thousands tweeted to warn about these products, especially in light of the availability of many alternatives to them with higher quality and more competitive prices, and the tweeters monitored a list of 86 Turkish brands.
The tweeters said that Turkish products can be distinguished through the “barcode” that begins with the number 869.
The participants hope that the campaign will continue until it fully achieves its goals, in light of the emphasis on the effectiveness of the boycott as a successful way to counter Erdogan’s arrogance.
The success of the campaign in Saudi Arabia, and the participation of the largest Saudi commercial centers and markets, contributed to its rapid transmission to other Arab countries, including the UAE, Egypt, Morocco, and others, and the campaign spread to the widest extent, in protest against Turkey’s policies and support for terrorism, as well as its interference in Arab affairs.
