ISF seizes large amount of fuel stored to be sold on the black market

The General Directorate of the Internal Security Forces – Public Relations Division said in a statement that “Within the framework of combating fuel stored unsafely, due to its huge danger on public safety, and as a result of continuous follow-up, the directorate has received information from the Southern Investigation Detachment in the Regional Gendarmerie Unit stating that gas stations and industrial shops are storing gasoline and diesel to sell it on the black market at very high prices, taking advantage of the citizens’ dire need for this commodity.

Accordingly, patrols of the detachment raided those locations in several southern areas, where they seized more than 4,200 liters of the gasoline and diesel packed in “gallons” and transparent plastic containers with a capacity of 9 liters, a tank and an iron barrel, which were hidden inside rooms, in order to sell it later.

The seized items were handed over to the concerned units to complete the necessary legal procedures, under the supervision of the competent judiciary
