Rehabilitation of Industry Worldwide: How Did Syria Eliminate its Manufacturing Industry?

With each passing day, and with every additional complication and blow to the global economy, it is becoming increasingly clearer that only the countries that have maintained and developed their production systems – particularly the real production in industry, agriculture, and others – are the ones able to be resilient and ensure the living conditions of their people considerably, and away from the corny use of slogans about resilience.

Due to the Organized Plunder System: Food Insecurity Prevails Syria

Estimates of the disaster affecting the food system in Syria are increasing daily at an unprecedented pace, as there is an additional number of Syrians every year getting in a state of food insecurity, not in thousands or hundreds of thousands, but in millions. This is happening at an accelerated pace, which threatens to drag more citizens into destitution and poverty.

2.8 Million: The Average Cost of Living for a Syrian Family at the Beginning of Ramadan 2022

At the beginning of Ramadan 2022, the average cost of living for a Syrian family of 5 has exceeded 2.8 million Syrian pounds according to Kassioun index. It is an unprecedented increase within a record period of time that threatens millions of Syrians who are witnessing a catastrophic gap between the costs of living and the minimum wage of Syrian workers, which remains at the threshold of 92,970 Syrian pounds (i.e., less than half of the cost of the minimum amount of food per working individual alone)! 

More than Half of the Syrian People are Now in Need for Healthcare Assistance stars

The Syrian healthcare sector is facing crises and chronic problems that are reflecting in the lack of the availability and quality of healthcare services across the country. Alongside the inability to determine the real effects of the spread of Coronavirus in the country, in absence of reliable government figures on cases and deaths, disruption in healthcare services and systems continues. This is not only because of the spread of the virus and the conditions of the Syrian crisis, but mainly because of the decline in government expenditure on healthcare sector, which continues to reduce constantly and rapidly.

From the Sequestration of the Syrian Pound to its Release; towards further Public Impoverishment

All the financial and monetary procedures that have been officially taken and implemented, especially during the previous two years, boil down to the aim of sequestrating the Syrian pound and preventing the speculation of it, in addition to limiting the circulation of its cash flow as much as possible. Regardless of the accuracy and validity of these Resolutions, one of their consequences was the inflation of money supply in public and private banks, reaching a large excess liquidity that is not practically invested. These mechanisms of releasing this excess bank liquidity have started through a series of financial and monetary Resolutions, and these Resolutions have given way to (public and private) banks to widely open the door for lending, by opening the loan ceiling for some, and raising it for others.

Extending al-Jolani’s Mission… The “Show” Goes on

Since mid-2019, hardly two months pass without al-Jolani makes an appearance to us with a new statement or move. While many see this as his way not to deprive us of his “amiability” and to remind everyone that he is still present and relevant, which is certainly one of the explanations, what is more important is that these appearances have also become one of the tools used by those who have worked tirelessly, and for years on end, on the efforts to whitewash al-Nusra. In addition, each new appearance carries with it its own significances within the timeframe in which it occurs, including the latest appearance.

More than 3 Million are Injured in Syria; A Comprehensive File; and A Mock Management

In 2017, the World Health Organization estimated that nearly 3 million people in Syria are war-injured, and are suffering from disabilities at different levels. That is, nearly 15% of the population in Syria back then were living with the pain and the direct consequences of war on their bodies. The vast majority of them are forgotten, and they are not surrounded by any “special care” or compensation, not even by the cameras of international organizations.
