The U.S. forces sent a total of 60 truckloads of Syrian fuel to its bases in northern Iraq on Wednesday, the state-run SANA news agency reported.

The recent shipment is the latest in a string of U.S. thefts of Syrian oil, SANA noted.

In December, the Syrian foreign ministry estimated in a statement Syria's economic losses caused by the U.S. military operations on its soil at 111.9 billion U.S. dollars.

The direct losses are estimated at 25.9 billion dollars: 19.8 billion dollars from the U.S. theft of oil and gas, 3.2 billion dollars in damage to state infrastructure, and 2.9 billion dollars in damage to oil and gas facilities, according to the statement.

Meanwhile, the ministry put the indirect losses at 86 billion dollars.

"The American occupation forces and the militias associated with it continue their organized looting of oil, wheat and other basic resources and the national wealth of the Syrian people," the ministry noted.
