In Syria, the sale of bread was restricted




Over the past six months, the number of hungry Syrians has increased from 1.4 million to 9.3 million, the UN said.





The Syrian government has restricted the sale of bread, which state stores sell at reduced prices through subsidies. This is due to a tightening of the economic crisis, reports The Guardian on Monday, October 5.

It is specified that now a family of two people can receive only one package of such bread per day, a family of four people is entitled to two packages, a family of six people — three, larger families — no more than four packages.

Earlier, the authorities introduced a system of electronic cards for such bread. In private bakeries, bread costs five times more than subsidized bread (500 pounds per package against a hundred). For cheap bread, many hours of queues are lined up from night tonight.

The Guardian notes that President Bashar al-Assad has regained control over almost the entire territory of Syria, but he has to overcome the consequences of the collapse of the national currency and the coronavirus. In the areas that the government controls, the UN estimates that 90% of the population lives below the poverty threshold and unemployment is 80%. The number of hungry Syrians has increased from 1.4 million to 9.3 million in the past six months.

Recall that in late August, Assad appointed a new Syrian government. The Yu'ayl Cabinet was established after the last parliamentary elections, in which the ruling party won.
