It is mid winter, and the people of Deir Ezzor are still demanding the autonomous administration to increase their share of fuel.
Their appeals were met with a negative response on the part of the autonomous administration officials, as they have recently reduced Deir Ezzor’s share of the diesel used for agricultural and services purposes.
Since the beginning of this winter until this moment, the people of Deir Ezzor have been demanding the autonomous administration to increase their share of heating diesel to protect themselves and children from the harsh cold of winter. Deir Ezzor Civil Council dealt seriously with these demands and conveyed them several times to the autonomous administration’s leadership, but what happened is that the diesel quantity was reduced even more, which increased the suffering of Deir Ezzor’s people who are facing a bitter winter.
In addition to facing the bitterness of winter without heating, the people of Deir Ezzor are also facing a drought because of the absence of rain water this winter, so naturally the people’s need for fuel has increased as they will need to operate irrigation pumps and other machinery.
Until now, the autonomous administration has not taken any real step to meet the people’s need for fuel in Deir Ezzor although recently, people have held many protests and demonstrations in several areas of Deir Ezzor, demanding it to resolve the fuel shortage problem, knowing that their province is rich with oil resources.
