Turkey plunders 20,000 tons of grain from Girê Spî

Similar to Afrin, the Turkish state is also beginning to plunder the Girê Spî region. 20,000 tons of confiscated grain are to be brought to Turkey.

The plundering of Northern Syria by the Turkish army and its jihadist proxies is taking on ever new dimensions. Just as the occupying troops systematically plunder the canton of Afrin, which has been occupied since March 2018, and in particular sell the olive harvest profitably, Turkey has now begun to transport 20,000 tons of confiscated grain from Girê Spî (Tal Abyad) to Turkey. This is according to a report by the public procurement authority.

The transport contract for 20,000 tons of grain from Girê Spî was put out to public tender. The contract was awarded to the international forwarding company Öz-Duy. The grain is set to be transported to the storage facilities of the Turkish Grain Board (TMO) in Urfa by 30 June 2020.
