Damascus - At least 37 cistern trucks stole Syrian oil again from the Al Jazira desert, activists reported on social networks and local media on Wednesday.
From the town of Al Sweidieh, in the north of Hasaka province, the caravan travel to the so-called Iraqi Kurdistan through the Al Walled crossing, a regular path for those illegal operations, which have been constantly denounced by Syria and Russia.
The sources noted that the cistern trucks were accompanied by off-road vehicles supplied by the US Army to the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), made up of Kurdish groups.
The fields from where the hydrocarbon is extracted are located north and east of the regions of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor, on the administrative border of Hasaka, whose economic resources and infrastructure are under the control of the SDF in a sort of autonomy granted by Washington since 2016.
In that regard, Syria and Russia have insisted on the illegality of those actions, which cause the displacement of original Arab inhabitants, the plundering of their properties, the occupation of educational and service facilities, and the imposition of laws to recruit young people, among other repressive actions.
