Syria Accuses US Coalition of Deliberately Destroying its Oil Wells
Local Editor

The international coalition led by the United States has deliberately bombed oil wells in Syria, so that the government would not be able to use them, according to Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad.

"They made it necessary to spend tens of millions of dollars to resume work at these [oil] fields," Mekdad told Sputnik.

The US-led coalition, which has been carrying out airstrikes in Syria since 2014 without Damascus' or UN's approval, has yet to comment on the statement.

The United States continues its support for terrorists in Syria by financing and supplying them with arms, Mekdad said.

"I believe that the oxygen for terrorist groups comes from the United States," the Syrian official said.

He further noted that Damascus had heard "many times since the start of the crisis in 2011" the US statements on the reduction or termination of its support to the opposition in Syria.

"Meanwhile, [militant] groups are being provided with additional funding and arms," Mekdad stressed.

After the liberation of Eastern Ghouta and the town of Hajar Aswad from terrorists, the Syrian army discovered large stocks of arms, recently delivered from Western countries and the United States, the minister added.

"The United States must stop supporting terrorists and respect Syria's sovereignty and choice of the Syrian people," he underlined.
