AANES Oil Extraction: Figures Are Oddly Absent

The Autonomous Administration (AANES) doesn't have the decency to tell the public how much oil they're extracting from NE Syria, as if it's theirs alone. I struggle to find a single official statistic—a closely guarded secret.


For all its horrific faults, Bashar al-Assad's government used to be much more transparent about this.


Don't the Kurds deserve to know what's happening? Just the very basics, in case some Kurdish brothers were ripping them off.
