What makes the matters worse is that the Iranian proxy militias, the national defense and Assad’s forces get the largest quantity of ice, which causes a daily crisis and makes it difficult for people to get ice.

It is indicated that electricity has been absent from large areas of Deir Ezzor for years, and Assad regime has not solved this big problem that hinders the progress of life at all levels.
