The so-called “Caesar Act” and the aggressive measures it contains which suffocate Syrian economy, is one of most remarkable forms of  American war against the Syrian people, according to Dr. Akram Al-Hourani, Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Economics at Damascus University. He indicated that the “Caesar Act” measures target all the countries and companies that deal with the Syrian Central Bank.
