The United States steals oil from Syria again › World ›

US occupation forces transferred a shipment of 89 tankers carrying pirated Syrian oil to Iraq from fields in the Al-Jazeera region of eastern Deir Ezzor province.

Telesur notes that this type of action comes on top of a similar action carried out last Thursday when another caravan of 144 tankers entered Iraqi territory via the illegal Mahmoudiye crossing in northeast Hasakeh carrying hydrocarbons stolen from Syria.

These US-led fuel stealing operations are supported by the Syrian Kurdish militias Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF); who, together with their allies, control most of the oil fields in the east and north-east of this Arab country.

Data released by the Syrian authorities shows that the US plunders 80% of the crude oil produced in the country. That’s about 66,000 barrels a day.

Faced with this situation, Syria replies that it will continue the fight for its national sovereignty in order to regain all its occupied territories immediately.

This Arab country was producing more than 380,000 barrels of crude oil per day before the war, while it is currently importing oil to meet its local needs, which are estimated at 165,000 tons per day.
