In the Name of the Profit: into the ISIS-Turkey oil trade


 

#A stunning insight into the ISIS-Turkey oil trade. #Documents shedding light on the ISIS oil trade, jihadist passports with Turkish entry stamps, an instruction booklet – printed in Turkey – on how to wage war against the Syrian government, and more. #The areas surrounding Shaddadi has large natural oil reserves, and until recently, ISIS militants profited from it, forcing members of the local population to work in their oil industry. #Piles of detailed invoices used by ISIS to calculate daily revenues from selling oil were found on the site. #Local residents attested that intermediaries from Raqqa and Aleppo arrived to pick up the oil and often mentioned Turkey, while a captured ISIS recruit admitted on camera that the terrorist group sells oil to Turkey. #He and another foreign fighter from Saudi Arabia also revealed that it had been easy to cross the Turkish border.
