    We appreciate the responses forum members have periodically shared with us when we ask of opinions and perspectives on defeating ISIL. One of the questions/comments we repeatedly receive asks us if the Coalition Forces target Daesh’s source of funds– in essence, the revenue they generate from oil.

    Since September 2014, they have conducted 230 airstrikes against Daesh’s illicit oil operations. Airstrikes targeted most elements of the illicit oil enterprise, from collection, to storage, to transportation, reducing overall Daesh revenue by 30%. Keep in mind these particular airstrikes against oil operations, are in addition to other types of targets such as airstrikes on communication and logistic supply facilities.

    Here is a strike video showing a ‪Coalition airstrike as it destroys a Daesh gas and oil separation plant near Dayr Az Zawr, Syria to disrupt terrorist oil operations.



    The strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to eliminate the Daesh terrorist group and the coalition force engaged in Operation Inherent Resolvecome from more than 60 partner nations.

    What do you make of the allegations about the US supporting the PKK and Turkey buying daesh oil?
