US military forces occupying Syria looted a new batch of oil on 7 October from the country’s Jazira region, local media reported.

According to local sources in the Al-Yarubiyah countryside, “a convoy of 50 tankers belonging to the American occupation, loaded with stolen Syrian oil, left Syria through the illegal Mahmoudiya crossing in batches towards Iraqi territory.”

In just a few short months, the US army has stepped up its oil looting operations in Syria, transporting hundreds of tankers loaded with stolen Syrian oil from the Rmelan fields of the Jazira region into its bases in Iraq, with the aid of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Just at the end of last month, US occupation forces smuggled 79 tankers loaded with Syrian oil from the fields of Jazira region to Iraq.
