Resentment in Qamishli over high commodity prices


With the advent of the month of Ramadan, Qamshili residents expressed dismay at the high prices of staples amid the absence of the Autonomous Administration’s control over the market.

The prices of vegetables and fruits rose in the north and east of Syria as crops were damaged due to climatic factors, especially drought, leading to a shortage of supplies in the region.

Also, the depreciation of the Syrian Pound (SYP) against the USD contributed significantly to the rise in prices, with many residents’ salaries being less than 100 USD.
