Russian Air Force paralyzes the ISIS oil transport

The Russian Federation’s Defense Minister was not being facetious when he asserted that the Russian military will stop the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) oil trade through a strategic bombing campaign that would target the sites the terrorist group uses to plunder Syrian reserves.
On Saturday morning in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Russian Air Force’s fighter jets pulverized ISIS’ oil tankers outside of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) and the oil rich town of Al-Sukhenah, destroying a convoy of vehicles that were seen heading north towards the Turkish border.
Following the airstrikes, drone footage captured several images of the aftermath from the Russian Air Force’s powerful airstrikes; this drone footage displayed a row of vehicles that were incinerated as a result of the oil catching fire from the Russian explosives that repeatedly pounded the tankers.
As a result of these of these airstrikes on Saturday morning, ISIS was left paralyzed and immobile – they could no longer cash in on their biggest monetary source in Syria, thanks in large part to the Russian Air Force’s non-stop bombing.
