Chronic crises in regime-held areas | Transportation services deteriorate even more, amid astronomically inflated prices of essential products

SOHR activists say that the areas under the control of the Syrian regime throughout Syria are struggling with poor transportation services in light of the ongoing fuel crisis. In addition, the residents in theses area are still suffering from the acute shortage of bread and water, as the long lines in front of bread bakeries and petrol stations and in taxi and bus stations top the events. The regime-held areas are experiencing almost-complete lack of means of public transportation, while regime government has been still unable to put an end to these crises which plagued the Syrians.

 

On the other hand, the markets in Damascus have experienced a new increase in the prices of chicken and chicken meat which have become 30% higher than the previous prices. The new prices of chicken, chicken meat and meals and other essential products have been set as follows:

 

  • Chicken: 7,500 SYL per kilo

 

  • Chicken meat: 10,500 SYL per kilo

 

  • Chicken drumsticks: 11,000 SYL per kilo

Moreover, the prices of canned food and legumes have increased by nearly 15% regarding last week’s prices.
