ARK News… Syrian media outlets revealed that allowing sheep to be exported outside Syria as the Hajj season approaches, led to an increase in the prices of slaughtered animals in local markets.

Syrian media outlets said, through an official in the Syrian regime’s government, that the start of the Hajj season, the approaching Eid al-Adgha, and the permission to export sheep outside Syria, led to an increase in the prices of slaughtered animals in areas under the control of the Syrian regime, as the price of a sheep in local markets is about 5 million Syrian pounds.

According to Syrian media sources, the price of a kilo of lamb weighing more than 50 kilos is about 90,000 Syrian pounds, while the price of a kilo of lamb weighing less than 50 kilos is 110,000 Syrian pounds.

According to sources, the Iraqi Hezbollah militia is working to smuggle livestock from Deir Ez-Zour, eastern Syria, to Iraq.
