Jabal al-Arab | Public discontent grows as fuel crisis continues, amid Syrian regime’s failure to find solutions

Al-Sweida governorate – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored, on Sunday morning, a large crowd for the people of the city of al-Shahba in the countryside of al-Sweida at micro buses terminal, in light of strike by the drivers of these micro buses, in addition to the failure of the Syrian regime’s government to provide them with diesel.

This comes in light of protests across al-Sweida against the disastrous living conditions in all provinces, and the regime’s authorities’ mishandling of these crises, which are affecting the lives of civilians, including fuel, bread, high prices, and the scarcity of jobs and low wages.

Yesterday, SOHR activists monitored deployment of members of the regime security services and of Al-Baath party’s in Al-Sair square and surrounding areas in Al-Suwaidaa city following renewed calls by university students of staging a demonstration under the name “We are unable to learn. We fed up with humiliation. We want to live”, hinting to the dire living situation and deteriorating economic hardship.

On Thursday, reliable sources informed SOHR sources that members of the regime security services and of Al-Baath party’s have deployed in Al-Sair square in Al-Suwaidaa city since morning following calls by university students of staging a demonstration under the name “We are unable to learn. We fed up with humiliation. We want to live”, hinting to the dire living situation and deteriorating economic hardship.

It is worth noting that the educational sector deteriorated greatly in light of the high cost-of-living.

On the other hand, gunmen opened fire on a petrol station at the entrance of Al-Suwaidaa Petroleum Company, in light of the stifling fuel crisis in regime-held areas throughout Syria.
