Considering the shortage of bread around the villages of Sheddadi [Şeddadê / Shaddadi / Shaddadah], the Committee of Co-operative Societies in Hasakah [Hesekê / Hesîçe / Al-Hasakah] has opened Erisa Bakery Co-operative in the village of Attala, 10 kilometres north of Sheddadi.

The project cost 40 million SYP [Syrian Pounds]. The bakery has 500 shares, and the price for a share is 50,000 SYP.

The inauguration started with a minute of silence then the mother of the martyr Ali Basam cut the opening tape.

Samir Sadiq, a member of the Union of Co-operative Societies, said, “The bakery’s production capacity will be four tons of bread, and that will cover the needs of about 2,500 families for bread.”
