US looting of new batch of Syrian oil denounced

Damascus, Mar 12 (Prensa Latina) The United States forces present in Syrian territory without the consent of the government or the approval of the United Nations, today looted a new batch of oil and transferred it to Iraq.

According to reports from the official agency SANA, a US convoy of 24 tanker trucks loaded with crude left for the north of neighboring Iraq through the illegal border crossing of Al-Walid.

He added that the oil was stolen from the Remelán fields in the far northeast of Hasakeh province, where the Pentagon maintains one of its main bases in Syria.

The column, according to the media, was guarded by several US armored vehicles and its Syrian Democratic Forces (FDS) militia.

According to previous allegations by the Syrian Oil Ministry, the United States and the SDF steal more than 80 percent of crude oil production, forcing the country to rely on imports to guarantee its hydrocarbon needs.


The Kurdish-majority SDF militia dominates most of Syria’s oil-rich Al-Jazeera region and receives weapons, money and training from US occupation forces.
