The areas controlled by the Assad regime are suffering from a severe fuel crisis in Deir Ezzor province, eastern Syria, where unexpectedly gasoline was unavailable in the markets.
Local source in Al-Mayadeen city who requested to remain unnamed told D24 network that there is no fuel in the gas stations in Al-Mayadeen and Deir Ezzor city, and that people have to stand for long hours in order to get fuel.
The source pointed out that there is not much choice for the people to get their need of the oil products, noting that the Assad regime militias and intelligence branches can get fuel easily and directly, while people who have no connections can’t get it.
The fuel crisis in the Assad areas came as a result of the actions taken by the international Coalition in the east of the Euphrates, as it expelled the companies which were working with the Assad regime and facilitating the process of exporting the crude oil and petroleum products to its areas of control in the west of the Euphrates.
More recently the international coalition has sought to prevent the oil flow to the Assad areas, as part of a new policy followed by the international Coalition to impose an economic blockade on the Assad regime.
It is noteworthy that the Areas of the Assad regime are still suffering from the unavailability of gas in most of the Syrian governorates.
