One crisis after another | Long queues of vehicles at gasoline stations to fuel up in regime-held areas, and smart card for bread distribution
The fuel crisis continues in regime-held areas, where the long queues of vehicles are still awaiting at the gas stations after the fuel quantities provided to the stations have been reduced by the regime authorities in light of the economic hardships and their impacts on the Syrian people.
The vehicles’ owners have to wait in lines for two days to get some liters of gasoline, others are unable to fuel up despite waiting for hours.
Meanwhile, a new crisis deepens the suffering the residents in regime-held areas. After the fuel and electricity crisis and the high prices, the Syrian regime’s government adopted a new resolution leading to the distribution of bread to civilians through the “smart card.”
The decision will come into effect as of the next week, and bread will be distributed according to the number of members of each family in order to reduce the crisis in the country. Bread backeries in various Syrian provinces are experiencing a severe crisis due to the lack of flour provided to them by the Syrian regime authorities.
