US airstrikes on IS oil assets

Sharing is caring!

The U.S. took its initiative of  attacking on Islamic State’s industrial base, striking more than 100 tanker trucks used to transport oil that helps the militant group earn tens of millions of dollars each month, an American military spokesman said Monday.

The strikes, part of a broader campaign that began weeks ago, come as the French government conducts airstrikes against Islamic State in retaliation for the series of attacks in the Paris area Friday that killed more than 120 people. The U.S. is providing intelligence and targeting information to the French military to assist in their new campaign.
