A large number of cars await to fill up gas in Damascus.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 P.M.) – The fuel crisis in Syria has forced the Syrian government to issue rations on gas in order to deal with the ongoing sanctions that are greatly effecting the country.

Over the last two weeks, thousands of cars in cities like Damascus, Latakia, and Aleppo are forced to wait several hours to fill up gas as the lines often stretch 3-5km long.

With Iran under strict sanctions by the U.S., Syria has run into a serious fuel problem that has harmed almost the entire country.

The fuel crisis is not only effecting travel, but also providing electricity to homes in several large cities, including Aleppo, Damascus, and Homs.

Below are some photos showing the long lines to fill up gas in Damascus:

There is a huge Al Qaidah & ISIS califat in Yemen, bigger the one that existed in Syria and Iraq in 2015, and the US and their allies don’t do s**t against them why ? The answer : ISIS and Al Qaidah are not the enemies of the US and Israel, they are just strategic allies against the Shiite heretics and arab nationalism, and also against China, Russia and India.

Sure but this kind of labelling cannot hurt those that can see ghost. Cos they must aware, seeing ghost is not an advantage in human world, based on what they get as return, if they try to explain, why talking to themselves.
