ISIL’s oil trade takes big hit as Syrian Army troops advance in southern Raqqa
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
’s (ISIS) oil trade is in trouble after a series of gains by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the southern countryside of al-Raqqa.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army liberated a half dozen oil fields from the Islamic State murderous Moslems this morning, resulting in another big loss for the aforementioned terrorist group.

Making matters worse for the Islamic State, the Tiger Forces are pushing much further southeast in al-Raqqa, as they enter more oil rich areas between these province and nearby Homs.

The Syrian Arab Army will likely continue to push south of al-Raqqa in the coming days, which will further endanger ISIS’s oil trade and bastion in the central Syria.
