Al-Nusra raises fuel prices within the areas under its control.
Al-Nusra, classified on the list of international terrorism, raised the prices of fuel in the various areas under its control in northwestern Syria, for the 4th time in a row this month.
The decision to raise prices came through a decision issued by “Watad” company affiliated with the organization today setting the price of a liter of imported gasoline at 7.66 Turkish liras, and a liter of imported type diesel at 7.05 Turkish liras, and refined diesel at 4.58 Turkish liras, and the price of a gas cylinder became 96.50-99.50 Turkish lira.
Al-Nusra justified that the increase in fuel prices within the areas under its control was due to the high exchange rate of the dollar against the Turkish lira, noting that the latest increase decision is the 4th issued this month by the organization.
Al-Nusra’s decisions to raise fuel prices come within the policy of exploiting the reality of the increased demand for the material by the people, who are currently heading to store it in preparation for the winter season.
Al-Nusra’s ability to raise the fuel prices comes from the reality of its monopoly, through “Watad” the import operations of the material from Turkey to the areas under its control, coinciding with preventing any other party from entering the fuel import line, as it enables them to impose their high prices and manipulate them without any deterrent.
