Syria condemned the continued plundering of Syrian oil and other resources by the US occupation forces, calling this action “banditry.”
“Over the past weeks, the US occupation forces have intensified looting and smuggling the Syrian oil and others wealth through northern Iraq to Turkey,” the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry posted on Twitter on Saturday.
These banditry actions violate the international humanitarian law and lead to the impoverishment of the Syrian people and prolong their suffering, the ministry added.
“Syria demanded the US administration to stop this looting and pay compensation to the Syrian people, “the ministry went on to say.
The US plays the role of pirates and bandits, the ministry said.
Syria calls on the US to stop supporting terrorism and the separatist militias and immediately withdraw from the occupied Syrian territories, the ministry indicated.
