BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – Protesters gathered in front of a government building in Sweida city on Wednesday morning to protest the ongoing fuel crsis, the Sweida 24 channel reported.

The protesters are demanding the government solve the fuel crisis as the situation has become dire for many Syrians.

Due to the ongoing U.S.-led sanctions, the Syrian government has been forced to put a restriction on the amount gas a consumer can purchase.

Iran, who was Syria’s largest supplier of oil, has been unable to make deliveries as of late due to the sanctions preventing their ships from traveling to Syrian ports.

Weird comment as Israël was no party in the syrian civil war and to some extent even profited from Assads mishandling of the situation. His malgovernance destroyed the social cohesion of his country, its economy and led to millions fleeing the country, most young men leaving to avoid the 7year draft and he is responsable for the tens of thousands tortured and killed in his prisons, for the loss of some 40% of the country out of his control. Israël used to have an opponent with a lange army and airforce. Now it has an opponent without a real modern… Read more »

When you call it a ” civil war” it proves to us you don’t grasp the situation in Syria and beyond. Your kowtowing for Israel is a joke, eventhough israel is not solely to blame for this proxy-war ( the main instigators are the regimes in Washington, London, Doha, Ankara, Riyad and Paris) they do have their fair share, read the Wikileaks documents on how Clinton wanted a no-fly-zone, more and active supporting jihadist rebels for the benefit of Israel, so to exempt them in this mess has nothing to do with facts.

Israël had at most a small impact on a few small militia near the Golan. As for the main culprits of blame, I would add Moscow, Tehran, Qatar, Dubai. And I woud add in capital letters DAMASCUS. Israël is at most a second tier player here.

Why oh why is everything bad in most muslim countries always the fault of someone else and no arab is ever to be blamed for anything.

Downvote what you want but the most responsable culprits for Syrië are Assad and Erdogan.

If it wasn’t for the US regime there wouldn’t be any war in Syria and the huge deplacement of migrants to Europe. Moscow, Tehran were invited to help the Syrian government to liberate the US funded islamists. It is true that Doha, Riyad and Ankara are for a big part responsible, but just like in Libya nothing happens without the consent of the US-regime.. And Israel didn’t fire a single bullet to those Al Qaeda and ISIS-Muhamedan terrorists but were quick to bomb Syria while strengthening the jihadists..
