as every summer, some people traveling to lebanon ship their cars by land through syria - this year, they have been encouraged to do the same via a wicked strategy: ship your car in a fridge, thieves won't see it!
armed with a strong strategy, 3 friends of mine decided to ship their cars in spite - elie g, rami z, and imad s, took a calculated risk but soon after the cars were shipped, the guys were hit by a shocking news, the cars were stolen in syria!
at first, the thieves asked for 8 kalashnikovs in return for every car, then they escalated their demands asking for thousands of kds in cash - i've been following up the news with one of my friends who owned the stolen cadillac and it seems that the guy who was negotiating with them died in the raging war in syria - then this video appeared on youtube showing his car parked in the middle of a highway between daraa and damascus, used by the opposition forces as the video explains.
the total stolen cars from kuwait has now risen to 27 - a word of advice, do not ship your car to lebanon via syria, it will only make it to youtube!
thanks for the video andre.
