"SDF" groups backed by the American occupation dismantle the railways in the countryside of Deir Ezzor to smuggle and sell them

Dozens of armed men affiliated to the American occupation-backed "SDF" groups stole railway tracks in the countryside of Deir Ezzor to smuggle and sell them.

“A number of armed men from the American occupation-backed "SDF" groups have dismantled hundreds of meters of railways along train stations in Bir Jowef which is located between Deir Al-Zour and Hasaka and another railway which is located in the vicinity of the village of Al-Sabha, in Al-Basirah area,” SANA correspondent in Deir Al-Zour quoted civil sources from the region as saying. The armed men looted a number of stations, equipments, and maintenance and spare parts and transported them via high-weight lorries to the areas under their control. 

The sources pointed out that the "SDF" groups that take orders from the American occupation forces in the region deal with brokers and dealers who transport the railways to the Turkish markets in order to be melted in  special factories and converted to iron bars and sold.

In the areas controlled by "SDF" groups, the locals face daily practices and attacks against them. The locals carry out protest demonstrations calling for the expulsion of the armed men of those groups that wreak havoc in the region and spread fear due to their hostilities against civilians and who loot oil and destroy the infrastructure.
