Coalition Air Strikes Wipe Out More ISIS Oil Assets In Syria

Coalition military forces have carried out 10 air strikes against ISIS targets in Syria, destroying five supply routes, oil well heads and oil tanker trucks, the Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) said on Friday.

The latest air strikes of the CJTF-OIR forces against the Islamic State come days after coalition strikes destroyed 55 ISIS oil tankers in Syria. The coalition comprises of forces from Australia, Bahrain, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, The Netherlands, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

In the latest air strikes, the combined task force also targeted ISIS in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of the Iraqi government, and destroyed tactical and logistic units of the Islamic militants.

Back to Syria, earlier this month, U.S. and coalition military forces conducted air strikes and destroyed ISIS oil pump jacks and oil tanker trucks, including two oil pump jacks, an oil tank and a headquarters building near Raqqa, the Islamic State militants’ de facto capital in the country.

Last month, a coalition forces’ air strike in the province of Deir Ezzor destroyed 83 oil tank trucks used by ISIS to transport crude, the group’s major source of funding. The air strike was part of the larger Tidal Wave II operation whose ultimate goal is to destroy ISIS’ oil-smuggling activities, depriving the terrorist organization of its main means of supporting itself.

Meanwhile, the U.S. and Russia have traded accusations that the other is not holding their end of the fragile Syrian ceasefire deal they had brokered last Friday. The ceasefire, which aimed to pave the way for ending the civil war in Syria, has been largely holding, but the United Nations face difficulties in reaching besieged cities such as Aleppo to deliver humanitarian aid to civilians. Should the ceasefire hold for seven days, Russia and the U.S. will start talking about potential military options to target ISIS.
