Aleppo, Syria, Nov. 10, 2018. Olive farmers complain about the low olive oil profits compared to last year in the Afrin area in Aleppo, Northern Syria. The farmers also complained about the high prices of fuel and labor costs. The olive farmer Nouri said that he sells olive oil for only 14,000 Syrian pounds (SYP) per container, although he sold it for 22,000 SYP last year. Nouri noted that he pays workers 3,000 SYP a day to produce the oil. Nouri added that the expensive diesel, at 60,000 SYP per barrel, caused olive farmers in Aleppo to neglect their trees. Last year, the olive production decreased by 50 percent in the Afrin area due to the lack of rain. As a result, the price of olives decreased to 60 SYP per kilo.
