In recent statements to parliament, Syria’s Prime Minister Hussein Arnous revealed that oil tankers loaded with crude allocated for Syria are being attacked or intercepted on the high seas.

The goal is to aggravate the hydrocarbon crisis generated by the economic sanctions and the occupation of over 90 percent of the territory where Syrian oil wells are located, he detailed.

USA, Israel expand their dirty war against SyriaThe PM revealed that seven tankers, some of them coming from Iran, were intercepted in the Red Sea and two others were intentionally attacked.

That information was confirmed by the US press when The Wall Street Journal issued that Israel attacked at least a dozen ships carrying Iranian oil since the end of 2019.

According to unidentified regional and US officials cited by the newspaper, Tel Aviv used water mines and other weapons to sabotage Iranian or other vessels carrying cargo in the Red Sea and other areas in the region.

Those actions did not sink any tankers, but forced at least two of them to return to Iranian ports, and delayed the arrival of others in Syria, leading to oil derivatives crises.
