The Islamic State militants (ISIL) reportedly earn an estimated $2 million daily from several oil fields and refineries in the region.
“At least four oil installations and three oil fields were hit around the town of Mayadeen in the eastern province of Deir el-Zour, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and two local activist groups. A third activist group loyal to the militants confirmed the reports.”
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the airstrikes killed 20 people, including 14 militants.
