Damascus reveals the extent of the plunder of Syrian oil by the Americans


The armed forces of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), backed by the United States, steal about 140 barrels of oil every day from fields in the northeastern part of Hasake province in the SAR. The Iranian agency Fars, citing sources in Damascus, reported on the scale of the theft of Americans and their subordinate forces in Syria on Monday 22 February.


Backed by Washington, terrorist groups are using cisterns in the Taramish region of Hasake province to illegally sell oil to Iraq. According to the governor of Gassan province, Halim Khalil, while Syrians suffer from hunger and cold, groups of militants subordinated to the Americans are plundering the country's national resources.

Last year, oil production in Syria reached 89 thousand barrels per day. Of these, about 80 thousand barrels were stolen

- said the Syrian Minister of Oil and Mineral Resources Bassam Tuome in early February.

That is, the US military and its allies in the person of the Kurds are stealing virtually all the oil in eastern Syria. This is not surprising, since the largest deposit of "black gold" in the Al-Omar SAR in the province of Deir es-Zor is under the control of the Americans.

Earlier, the Russian military department also pointed to the large scale of the plunder of the natural resources of Syria by the Americans in the territories of the country that they occupied. The hydrocarbons extracted from the Syrian bowels were sent for processing outside the republic.

    An extremely strange and illogical formulation of the question. The Kurds from the SDF are the indigenous inhabitants of this area of ​​former Syria, this is their land and, accordingly, its bowels also belong to them, so what kind of robbery in this case can we talk about? And the fact that they do not want to return to the rule of the Alawite dictator in order to again become third-class citizens in his state is their choice.

          In Afghanistan, the Americans protect drug trafficking.
          Stolen oil is traded in the illegally occupied areas of Syria.

      The subsoil does not belong to individuals or groups. The bowels of the earth belong to the entire Syrian people, and not to a separate part of it. I mean, the state.
      That is, in essence, the formulation of the question is absolutely correct. And your reasoning is absolutely wrong.
      If I have an oil rig in my yard, this does not mean that the oil belongs to me personally. Even if documents have been drawn up for my site.

        There is no single Syrian people, just as there is no Soviet people. Once Azerbaijan was a Soviet republic and revenues from its deposits went to the budget of the USSR, today Azerbaijan is a sovereign state and manages its own revenues. You don't think that Baku should allocate funds from the sale of hydrocarbons to Moscow?

          You are confusing something. Or you don’t understand.
          During the period of the USSR, mineral resources belonged to the Soviet people (despite your disbelief, such a people existed. The war is proof of that). During the period of independent Azerbaijan, the subsoil belonged to the Azerbaijani people. For the right to extract ANY minerals, any company (or individual) pays the state (that is, the people) tax for the right to use the subsoil. But this does not mean that these deposits belong to a company or an individual.
          Let's go back to Syria. There is a concept of the state of Syria. The people of Syria (say, the citizens of the state) can consist of several parts. As in Russia, as in Azerbaijan, as in Israel, by the way.
          Say, if oil is found in the territory where the Druze live, does it mean that this oil does not belong to Israel, but specifically to the Druze? And they can conclude an agreement with Syria, for example, and sell them this oil?
          The point is that the citizens of Syria illegally extract oil and sell it to some outsiders. Either the Americans, or the Turks. Never mind. The robbery is obvious. So you are fundamentally wrong. Your last phrase says that you recognize an independent Syrian Kurdistan. But such a state does not exist.

            SDS Kurds declared their independence a few years ago, and the fact that Damascus does not agree with this is their problem. In Damascus, Israel has not yet been recognized either, since 1948.

              Self-proclamation is not a state. Today this state does not exist legally. Elementary - through which legalized banks do transactions for this oil pass?

              The fact that the Kurds have declared their independence is their problem. They will be either under the rule of Damascus or under the rule of Ankara. Damascus is weak at the moment. Ankara will not allow the entire Kurdistan Region to be unified. This is a full-fledged war in the region. Moreover, Ankara's war against Washington. Why are Russian troops leaving this area? Who do they leave this field to? Americans or Turks? Erdogan's main mistake was made many years ago. When he went on about the Americans with regard to Iraq. Received Iraqi Kurdistan. The second time he will not make a similar mistake.
              A united Kurdistan will be under American patronage. It is unprofitable for Iran, Turkey, Syria, Russia. Moreover, Iran and Turkey will fight to the death. From here and proceed in the analysis of the situation.

              Returning to oil. This is stolen oil and there is no other interpretation from the point of view of international law. Do you disagree with this? This does not change the essence of the matter.

      If the Arabs do not want to live under the rule of the Jews and want to create their own state, then this is their choice.

      An extremely strange and illogical formulation of the question. SDF Kurds are indigenous to the area.

      These are the lands of local Arab tribes.
      Kurds are newcomers there.

      Can the same statement be attributed to the Crimeans and residents of Donbass?
