Al-Raqqa - SMART

On Wednesday, the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) confiscated trucks loaded with fuel north of al-Raqqa city, which is controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Northeastern Syria.

The YPG is a predominantly Kurdish military faction in Syria that controls areas in al-Raqqa, al-Hasakah and Aleppo. The YPG fights the Islamic State and is supported by the International Coalition. It does not fight against the Syrian loyalist forces but fights against the Free Syrian Army. Its components constitute the majority of the  SDF.

A local source told SMART that the YPG confiscated ten trucks loaded with fuel at their checkpoint east of the Kalta village, north of al-Raqqa. The YPG confiscated the fuel without arresting any drivers.

The source added that the confiscation was on charges of "smuggling fuel that should only be sold by the YPG forces."

The SDF in Northern al-Raqqa have been confiscating truckloads of fuel from al-Hasakah and Deir al-Zor on a regular basis for several months.

Earlier this month, the price of fuel rose in the governorate of al-Raqqa because the SDF monopolized and sold it to areas controlled by the Syrian government forces.
