Speaking to ARA News in Hasakah, a grain market trader said that the IS radical group recently put portable balances on the road between Hasakah and Deir ez-Zor near the city of Shaddadi (40 km south of Hasakah) where the IS members calculate the shipments and impose 11,000 Syrian Pounds per tonne on every trucker.
