Fuel crisis in regime-held areas | oil tankers coming from SDF-held areas entre regime-held areas

SOHR activists have reported that nearly 350 tankers of Al-Qatarji company, loaded with crude oil, coming from “SDF” controlled areas have headed to areas held by Syrian regime via Al-Tayhah crossing in eastern aleppo countryside.

It is worth noting that areas under the control of Syrian regime are hit by a severe fuel shortage despite the arrival of oil tankers at Baniyas mouth nearly a week ago that supply oil to regime-held areas.

On September 15, an oil tanker loaded with 1 million barrels of crude oil docked at Baniyas port.

This is the second shipment of oil that arrive in regime held areas in September in accordance with “Credit Line” agreement reached between the Iranian and Syrian governments early this year 2022, which provides for supplying Syria with Iranian diesel to meet the needs of the market thought regime-held areas.

SOHR sources have confirmed people in areas under the control of regime are still suffering from stifling fuel crisis and the message that include the news of arrival of petrol, have delayed for more than ten days, while the price of petrol on the black market ranged from 6,000 to 7,000 SYP per litre.
