Syria: US sanctions on Iran lead to fuel shortages

How Syrians living in government-controlled areas are dealing with a major fuel shortage.

    US sanctions against Iran are causing fuel shortages in government-held parts of Syria.

    Iranian ally, the Lebanese Hezbollah group, is also being prevented from sending fuel to Syria.

    The sanctions are working in favour of Russia, which is looking to step in and fill the gap in supply.
