Bread Policy in Syria

It is impossible for a country in the world to withstand a global multi-faced war such as the one Syria has been facing over the past eight years. Foreign-backed terrorism coming from different parts of the world as well as a western blockade and unilateral coercive economic measures accompanied by a dirty media war against the country have aimed to subjugate the Syrian people and force the country to bow to the west's pressure.

However, the government has worked hard around the clock to withstand the crisis and enhance the steadfastness of the Syrian people by supporting the elements of this steadfastness, mainly food, with bread at the top.
