When President Trump began his campaign in 2015, he talked about the fact that we need to win back the oil from ISIS in Syria. He said that one of the ways you destroy ISIS is to take away their wealth, and that’s exactly what we are now doing.
According to a new report from the Daily Caller, U.S.-backed forces in Syria has taken over Syria’s BIGGEST oil field from ISIS!!!
This is a massive victory that the liberal media is trying to keep quiet, but it’s one of the most important stories you’ll see all day.
Here’s more from the Daily Caller:
U.S.-backed militias seized Syria’s biggest oil field from Islamic State fighters Sunday, dealing another crippling blow to the terrorist state just days after it was driven from its main stronghold in Raqqa.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) say they captured the al-Omar oil field in the early morning hours, driving ISIS militants into buildings in a nearby district. SDF troops are currently hunting down the remaining ISIS fighters in the area.
“Our forces managed to liberate the fields without notable damages,” said Lilwa al-Abdallah, spokeswoman for the SDF offensive, according to Reuters.
The al-Omar oil field has been one of ISIS’s most lucrative sources of revenue since the group captured it in 2014. ISIS militants have propped up their now-crumbling caliphate by selling al-Omar oil to Iraqi traders, middlemen from the Bashar al-Assad’s government and businessmen exporting to Turkey,
The capture of the oil field comes shortly after SDF completed its months-long operation to liberate Raqqa, the capital of the ISIS “caliphate” in Syria. Following the victory in Raqqa, SDF moved farther into eastern Syria to drive ISIS from its last remaining footholds in the oil-rich Deir al-Zour province, which borders Iraq.
This is exactly what President said that he would do on the campaign trail over a year ago. Watch below:
