AP: in the "Islamic State" reduced costs and began to accept only dollars from the population

39
As a result of effective air strikes and the attack of government forces in Syria, the terrorist group of the ISIS began to experience financial difficulties, RIA News Associated Press post.




"In the face of a shortage of cash in the so-called caliphate, the Islamic State group cut wages throughout the region, demanded that the residents of Raqqah pay utility bills in US dollars bought on the black market, and now frees detainees for 500 dollars per person," - writes the agency.

The organization, which recently boasted of its incredible wealth, now needs funds to replace the weapons destroyed in the battles and as a result of air strikes.

According to one of the migrants who fled from Raqqa to Turkey, “since December, all wages have been halved, electricity supply has been limited, and prices for basic products have increased significantly.” He noted that the reduction in salaries "affected not only militants, but also employees of all institutions, from courts to schools."

“If before the IG ensured the loyalty of the participants due to good salaries, additional payments for the wedding and the birth of children, today the terrorists cannot afford even small bonuses like free energy drinks and chocolate bars,” notes AP.

According to the agency, “another source of replenishment of the budget for IG was fines for non-observance of the dress code and the ransom in 500 dollars, allowing detainees to be released.”

In Iraq, the same picture is observed. The Iraqi government estimates the IG’s monthly losses at $ 10 million or more.

    And this cannot but rejoice. Still would permanently cut them off from oil revenues, half of the rats will scatter itself.

            A coalition of countries led by the First Most Powerful Army in the World could resist a handful of rebels !, but can’t compete with the 2nd?

        Well, it’s not without reason that Erdogan is furious that his income from stolen oil is also falling, and we must continue to work so that all this evil will disappear altogether.

      I was thinking, now our God’s mega-economists: Kudrin, Misha 2% and others do especially cool in Russia, would have recruited to the IG for some kind of positions and would have started to raise the terrorist economy from its knees, as all three have been able to do for a couple of months and the Islamic state would have come to an end ... And if Chubais was driven there with his ingenious ideas of vauchirization, then nobody would soon be bombed - everyone would die out, some from hunger, some from laughter ....! And it’s good for normal people! laughing

      But to be serious, the specialists behind the organization of these offices have taken a big step in development - from the terrorist Al-Qaeda to the real, albeit quasi-state, but this is a completely different level of threats!

    A very correct approach! Any "hunder partisan" lives until those glorious times, as long as she has where to lick after wounds, has something to devour, has something to shoot. When this is not the case, he does not want to fight.

    salary cuts “affected not only the militants, but also employees of all institutions, from courts to schools.”

    The militants paid salaries to judges and teachers? !!! What else did we not know about ISIS?
    Bearded executioners asked for a raise? Or reduced contributions to the UN? Case ...

      Well, how did they declare themselves a caliphate (read - the state), and since the treasury in the state is empty, then what? That's right - it's time to roll up the pyramid and smear the skins with ram fat.

      And in our time they say OIL-BLOOD OF WAR. Here donors and are afraid to appear in this world, ISIS (Daesh) is simply the servants of those who truly own this blood (OIL).

    Something the Saudis and the Turks do not want to fork out for their smaller "brothers". And the United States only throws up weapons from under the counter. Probably, internal problems begin to prevail.

    It is from the facts set forth in the article that they all started talking about a ceasefire and a ceasefire. Including Americans with Europoids. They need a respite now desperately. Therefore - no ceasefire, just beat. And when we finish, we will offer OUR conditions.

    How many "buttons" there were that it was a religiously motivated "army", but in reality it was a gang, with bucks in their eyes and brains !! Interestingly, in this flock at least some percentage of religious fanatics is, or all of them have one green god, the more the better ?!

    Of course, ours won, no questions. But, in January there was a story that the Americans in Mosul bombed the Treasury with ISIS cash. Perhaps this also somehow influenced?
