Hama - SMART

On Thursday, residents of the city of Hama, Central Syria, complained of poor bread quality and the manipulation of prices by bakeries and traders.

The residents told SMART that the Syrian government distributed bread stalls to citizens in the city's neighborhoods, such as al-Kosur, Aleppo Road, Souk al-Shajara, Naser, al-Mrabet and Shariah markets, but they were not open. Roaming cars sold bread to the people, but the quality of the bread was poor and half-baked, and there were insects inside.

The residents stated that the price of a bread bag is 100 Syrian pounds, with 18 loaves inside. However, shops sell the bread bag at 250 SYP, with 12 to 15 loaves only. The residents stressed that the bakery owners refused to sell the bread and asked them to buy from the accredited delegates by the bakeries.

The residents said that these delegates agree with the owners of bakeries to manufacture some small quantities of bread to sell to the people, in order to cover up the theft of flour and diesel from the bakeries and sell them to traders.

The residents added that they are forced to buy "tourist bread" from the private bakeries at 300 SYP with only eight loaves.

The residents' accusations of theft coincide with the municipality of the Syrian government's cutting down on the city's impoverished street vendors, in order to take bribes from them.
