The price of a kilo of sugar on the black market in the Assad regime-controlled areas in Deir Ezzor has risen to 5,000 Syrian pounds, as a result of it being monopolized by the governorate’s merchants and storing it pending an increase in prices.
The correspondent of DeirEzzor24 network said that one of the reasons for the increase in sugar in Deir Ezzor is the stopping of the smuggling of sugar from the Hawaij Al-Dhiab crossing in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, as a result of the disputes in charge of it in the SDF-controlled areas.
In the same context, the Ministry of Internal Trade and Consumer Protection in the Assad regime issued a decision to raise the price of a kilo of sugar to the consumer between 4200 and 4400 SP.
The price of a kilogram of “subsidized” sugar via the electronic card is 2,200 Syrian pounds, but the delivery message is always delayed in reaching citizens, forcing them to buy it on the black market.
