Homs | Members of Russian military police steal fuels from T4 airbase, selling it on black markets for high prices

Homs province: SOHR sources have reported that members of the Russian military police stole diesel from T4 airbase in the eastern countryside of Homs and offered it on black markets in north Homs countryside.


Reliable SOHR sources have confirmed that the Russian forces steal diesel twice a day, where they take 1,000 up to 1,500 liter in every time and sell them to merchants in northern Homs at double the price which is set by the regime government.


The transportation of diesel take place in coordination between members of the Russian military police and a man known as “Jaafar Jaafar” who is backed by the Lebanese Hezbollah and close to regime intelligence service.


SOHR activists have reported the arrival of a truck carrying diesel in Al-Mukhtariyah village in the northern countryside of Homs this morning. The truck was escorted by members of the Russian military police in a pick-up vehicle with a patch to the Russian flag.
