BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:55 A.M.) – Opposition sources have released satellite photos of a major oil field in Deir Ezzor Governorate that has been torched by ISIS militants prior to their retreating from the area.

The site in question has been geo-located and subsequently identified as the Jafra Oil Field, which is located directly east of Deir Ezzor city on the other side of the Euphrates River.

Whilst not as large as the Al-Omar Oil Field further to the southeast, the Jafra Oil Field does nonetheless sit atop a big crude reserve in respect to Syrian standards.

Opposition sources claim that the oil wells at Jafra were set ablaze just prior to ISIS militants withdrawing from the energy complex about to weeks ago.

Since Islamic State fighters retreated from the site, the Jafra Oil Field has come under the control of the US-backed, Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

Well you know the end point is near for ISIS. Destroying one of their major sources of income with a “burnt earth” policy means they have no hope of coming back. No income from oil nor “tax” on movement of goods from former area entry points they use to control, means that soon they won’t be able to pay their mercenaries or even feed them. And also being abandoned by their ever increasingly shy sponsors signals the pathetic end they so deserved. So then, ISIS, what’s it like to have been taken for fools by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Israel… Read more »
