Hama, SMART

On Monday, prices of food and health materials increased in markets in the city of Hama, Central Syria as the Syrian government forces continue to close the Mourek crossing. The markets in Hama ran out of most basic materials.

A local source reported that the markets ran out of most of the necessary materials and the prices of the available materials increased. The source added that the prices of rice increased from 400 to 450 or 475 Syrian pounds (SYP) per kilo. The prices of oil increased from 500  to 700 SYP per liter SYP. The prices of a pocket of soap increased from 1,00 to 1,200 or 1,300 SYP. A pocket of tissue increased from 250 to 350 or 400 SYP.

The source noted that dealers provided goods from Homs and Damascus after the Syrian government closed the Mourek crossing; however, the goods are much more expensive and of bad quality.

An owner of a sanitary materials factory said that they used to buy raw materials at the Mourek crossing for relatively low prices despite fees.

Fifteen days ago, the Syrian government forces closed the Mourek and al-Suqaylabiyah crossings after a disagreement with the Fourth Division of the Syrian government forces and Russian troops on managing the crossings, according to private sources.

Residents in Hama complain about the absence of the role of institutions’ belonging to the Syrian government amidst high prices of food and trade materials as well as the spread of garbage and the significant increase in power bills.
