In order to prevent oil smuggling to Iran-backed factions | SDF burns River crossing and targets others in Deir Ezzor countryside

Deir Ezzor province: SDF’s patrols have stormed oil smuggling crossings in al- Shuhayl town in east Deir Ezzor, and seized several river ferries that were used for trafficking fuel to the Syrian regime-held areas on the opposite side of Euphrates River and sat some of them ablaze.

The move came in light of chasing the oil smugglers from the SDF-held areas to the regime forces and the Iranian factions’ areas at the opposite side of Euphrates River.

On July 15, SOHR activists reported that Syria Democratic Forces raided river crossings in al-Shuhayl town on the bank of Euphrates River in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, where they attacked some ferries in the area, and set fire to others parked in al-Hawija town in Deir Ezzor countryside.

In the same day, SOHR activists reported seeing a patrol of Syria Democratic Forces storming river crossings in al-Zar village in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, where the patrol’s members dismantled a pipeline used for smuggling oil to the regime-held village of al-Zabari on the opposite bank of the Euphrates River and burned down the pipeline.
