Residents of AlSabina Camp Denounce Fuel Distribution Fraud

Residents of AlSabina Camp for Palestinian refugees said fuel distributors have been caught cheating civilians in the area and reducing the distributed quantity to 90 liters, instead of the expected 100 liters bought at a price of 20,000 Syrian Pounds.

Civilians said owners of fuel tanks pump the stolen liters, estimated at 10 to 20 per every 200 liters, into secret tanks.

A resident said tank owners have also been compelling civilians to shell out a tipping of 2,000 Syrian Pounds, overburdening the families’ already-exhausted budget.

The residents have urged the concerned authorities, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources of Syria, Syria’s General Authority for Hydrocarbons, and the Department of Consumer Affairs in Rif Dimashq to take urgent action in response to fuel distribution fraud and prop up monitoring mechanisms against crooked merchants.

On September 22, fuel supplies were distributed in AlSabina Camp. Lists of concerned families were prepared sometime earlier using smart cards.

Palestinian refugee families taking shelter in the area have sounded distress signals over the poor infrastructure, water and power outages, along with the absence of health care and transportation services. The swift price leap along with the high rates of unemployment and poverty have made the situation far worse.
