The attacks in Efrin, killing thousands, were paid for by the looting of their own olives. The Turkish state is implementing the same plunder policy in the occupied Girê Spî region. 20,000 tons of stolen grain belonging to the people are to be transported to Turkey.
The plundering of Northern Syria by the Turkish army and its jihadist proxies is taking new dimensions. Just as the occupying troops systematically plundered the canton of Efrin, which has been occupied since March 2018, and in particular sell the olive harvest profitably, Turkey has now begun to transport 20,000 tons of confiscated grain from Girê Spî (Tal Abyad) to Turkey. This is according to a report by the public procurement authority.
The transport contract for 20,000 tons of grain from Girê Spî was put out to public tender. The contract was awarded to the international forwarding company Öz-Duy. The grain is set to be transported to the storage facilities of the Turkish Grain Board (TMO) in Riha, Northern Kurdistan, by 30 June 2020.
