Russian airstrikes destroy 1,000 IS oil tankers in Syria

Russian airstrikes over the past five days have destroyed 1,000 tankers of stolen crude oil the Islamic State (IS) group was moving in the countryside of Syria's northern province of al-Raqqa, state news agency SANA reported on Monday.

Citing a Syrian military source, SANA said the Russian airstrikes also destroyed oil refineries in the southern countryside of al-Raqqa, the de facto capital of the IS group, and in the northern countryside of the eastern province of Deir al-Zour.

The strikes are the latest in an intensified series of Russian air operations against the IS terror group in Syria.

Oil has been one of the main lifelines the IS has been relying on to finance its terror operations in Syria and abroad.

Russia has been pounding IS positions in Syria since late September, with Syrian officials hailing the strikes as helping the war on terror.
