October 10, 2017 – Fort Russ News – Paul Antonopoulos

The Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters on Tuesday that ISIS no longer have the capabilities or revenue sources to purchase weapons and ammunition, and recruit new fighters.

“The Russian Aerospace Forces have destroyed the economic infrastructure of ISIL [ISIS] in Syria and foil any attempts by terrorists to resume the production and illegal sale of hydrocarbons in Syria,” he said.

“ISIL no longer has the sources of financing for purchasing weapons and ammunition and recruiting mercenaries in Syria,” he continued.

“The ongoing supply of terrorists from Iraq triggers serious questions concerning the objectives of operations against terrorists conducted in the region by US aircraft and the so-called international coalition,” Konashenkov stressed.
