actually a very considerable good salaru in syria is 50$ and no the prices aren't accurate. rent is way lower than that for example (But still is hogher than the net salary)
the war sadly isn't over and hope to pray for us

Is the average net salary really $80? Does this prices are accureate?
Is war still going on there or sick islamists was already wiped out?
