al-Hasakah - SMART

The Kurdish Autonomous Administration opened a bakery in the town of Tal Hamis, Northeastern al-Hasaka. The bakery will serve dozens of villages in the area. It cost 24 million Syrian Pounds.

A manager in the bakery, Mahmoud Soufi al-Yousef, said that the daily production capacity reached three tons. It will rise to six tons daily, knowing that the bakery has the capability of producing 10 tons daily.

Al-Yousef added that previously most of the residents depended on homemade bread, due to the lack of bakeries that cover the population.

Ahmed Sayed Suleiman, a resident from the village of al-Tufayhiya, said that he is glad for opening the bakery that will serve his town and the surrounding ones. He added that securing bread was an obstacle and that they used to go to distant places and wait in lines, or they would bake at home with primitive means.

Bread crisis has been taking place in the cities of al-Hasaka, Durbasiyh, and Amouda, after closing all the private bakeries in the city. The bakeries closed after their owners protested against raising flour prices, in addition to the lack of raw materials.
