US occupation forces smuggle 95 tankers of stolen Syrian oil out of the country

The US occupation forces continued to plunder Syrian oil, taking out 95 tankers loaded with the stolen oil through the illegal al-Walid and al-Mahmudiyah crossings with Iraq, state-run SANA news agency reported, citing local sources.

According to local sources in Al-Yarubiyah countryside the American occupation forces brought out new quantities of stolen oil from Syrian al-Jazeera and the Eastern region fields via 65 tankers across the illegal al-Mahmudiyah crossing, and 30 tankers through the illegal al-Walid crossing along borders with Iraq.

Syria’s Permanent Ambassador to the United Nations, Bassam Sabbagh, said yesterday that the continued looting of Syria’s oil and wheat by the US occupation forces and its militia has exacerbated the suffering of the Syrian people.

He pointed out that his country is surprised by the unacceptable disregard of this reality.
