ISIL’s Oil Tankers Convoy Destroyed in Syria’s Sweida Province
“A convoy of 16 ISIL oil tankers was targeted by the Syrian army in the region of Shaghaf Southeast of Sweida province,” the sources said.
The source noted that all of the oil tankers were set ablaze in the attack and the convoy’s guards were killed.
Military experts believe that one of the best ways to put the militant groups under pressure is cutting off their financial lifeline that is mainly comprised of crude sales and also cutting their supplying lines through continued attacks on their convoys.
“The militant groups do not have discipline of an army with a chart of military duties. A unit of them might be used as a combat group and in the same time as a supplying or engineering unit. So, they are vulnerable. They are not expert in their job. One-two regular attacks on their supplying convoys can face them big problems,” experts say.
Last month, The Syrian army and popular forces intensified their military operations against ISIL terrorists in the province of Sweida.
The Syrian army, backed by the popular defense groups, destroyed ISIL positions in the village of al-Qaser in the Northern countryside of Sweida.
The Syrian forces also destroyed a heavy machine gun-equipped car during the military operations, killing all terrorists on board.
Meanwhile, a group of terrorists were killed and injured in clashes with the National Defense Forces in the vicinity of al-Haqaf village in the countryside of Sweida.
