Reuters reports that this weekend’s US-led airstrikes on Daesh took out a major oil facility and 283 vehicles.
The US-led coalition airstrikes have been targeting Daesh oil supplies since mid-November. On November 16, over 100 oil trucks were reportedly destroyed in Deir al-Zour, a Daesh stronghold near the Syrian-Iraqi border.
Eleven separate airstrikes in eastern Syrian on Saturday destroyed 283 Daesh oil transport vehicles and a major crude-oil collection point, according to Reuters.
On Sunday, airstrikes in both Syria and Iraq targeted known Daesh tactical units, buildings, and strategic gathering points. The number of casualties is unknown.
Daesh is suspected to earn upwards of $40 million a month from illegally exporting crude oil.
