Syria: US continues to loot oil through Iraq


The Syrian Agency has reported that the United States continues to loot oil from Syria’s Al-Jazeera region through Iraqi territories.

The Agency on 21st September, 2020 stated that a US convoy, consisting of 30 tanker trucks laden with stolen Syrian oil has left the war-stricken country and sneaked into neighbouring Iraq through the illegal Al-Walid crossing in the Al-Yaroubia area.

The agency added that the US forces and the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) collaborates to control most of the oil fields in northern and eastern Syria.

This was said to have been confirmed during a Senate hearing exchange between South Carolina Republican Senator, Lindsey Graham, and US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, in late July.

Syria’s United Nations envoy, Bashar Al-Jaafari, recently said that, “The American Delta Crescent Energy company had entered into a contract with the SDF, with the aim of stealing Syrian oil and depriving the Syrian state and Syrian people of the basic revenues necessary to improve the humanitarian situation, provide for livelihood needs and reconstruction.”
