Ali al-Abdullah

A fire broke out on Tuesday night in the Nestlé Factory in Damascus’s Countryside, considered the largest and most important factory in Syria for foods production, when armed militiamen targeted the factory with mortars in an attempt to strike economic institutions in Syria.
In an interview with al-Ahed News website, Engineer Issam Zamreeq, Vice President of Damascus’s Chamber of Industry expressed his deep “sorrow for Nestlé being out of service due to the great fire it suffered.”
Moreover, Zamreeq highlighted, “The Nestlé factory’s fire is a loss to the Syrian economy as a whole, since it provided children’s milk (Nestlé Nido),” underscoring, “Syria has alternatives to supply children’s milk through offers from Iranian companies, especially in light of the tough situation Syria witnesses.”

Furthermore, Wadea Abu Hani, member of The Popular Committee for the Liberation of Palestine, George Habash Wing pointed out, “The armed groups fired many random mortars on Khan al-Sheeh camp, in which Palestinians mainly reside. A mortar fell on Beer al-Sabea School and another on an agricultural research center.”
“Damages were limited to physical damages and no causalities,” he added.
