BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that a convoy of U.S. military vehicles “loaded with stolen grain” recently left from Syria’s Al-Hasakah Governorate to northern Iraq.
According to SANA, the U.S. convoy transported the grain to northern Iraq after transiting the illegal Al-Walid Crossing in the country of Al-Yaroubiya.
SANA’s sources said that “the convoy included 50 trucks with a number of refrigerators, which left the city of Al-Malikiyah to the illegal Al-Walid crossing, bound for Iraqi lands.”
The sources pointed out that the U.S. army carried out “systematic theft of grains produced from the Syrian fields, the last of which was the theft of wheat from the Al-Tawiba silo and from the warehouses of the Nama company.”
The U.S. has imposed strict sanctions against the Syrian Arab Republic, which has caused major issues inside the country, especially on the economic front, where the currency has greatly inflated over the last year.
Syria has accused the U.S. of also stealing its oil resources, as they currently occupy the country’s largest oil field in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor.
