Due to the lack of funds from the “Islamic State”, the number of mercenaries arriving in the grouping has sharply decreased, leading Look Post by American General Peter Gersten.


American General: IG does not have enough money to recruit recruits


“When I arrived in Baghdad about a year ago, every month IG ranged from 1,5 thousand to 2 thousand foreign fighters. Now the IG can only afford to take 200, ”said the deputy commander of the Western coalition forces.

He connected this circumstance with the coalition inflicted airstrikes on the money depositories of terrorists. According to him, such blows were inflicted around 20-ti. As a result, “about the 500 million US dollars that were at the disposal of the terrorists were destroyed,” Gersten said.

“We have different assessments (amounts of money), and intelligence studies this. I heard numbers from 300 to 800 millions. On average, this is 500 million dollars, ”he added.

In this connection, the general mentioned the operation to destroy the bank of Islamists. According to him, this bank "was under the control of the financial emir of the southern region of Mosul, who was the main distributor of funds among the militants of the IG."

Earlier in April, American experts reported that terrorist revenues fell by almost a third compared with previous years.

      Or maybe it's time for them to fight for the idea? And at the same time block the banking channels to the West. After all, bombing cash vaults is not productive. And in general it’s interesting - for the first time I hear about such a combat move. It can be seen great tactics changing.

        American generals are waiting for IS fighters to starve to death, not a bullet. what

      The general was just upset.
      Now they are probably planning: to throw some money, after all, there is not enough money for the poor and poor "oppositionists" ...

    Throw up soon. The United States does not abandon its own.
    ISIS will soon (quite by accident) recapture poppy fields from the Taliban.

      Why not bomb the dollars? Their security is close to zero, so this is not the first year this is paper for fools. And printing new ones is not a problem.

    The Americans do not have enough money to recruit additional parties of militants for ISIS, what kind of nonsense ??
    Doesn’t the photo of the militants with MANPADS say that you can’t get off your donkey and immediately become a cool gunner, anti-aircraft gunner, American specialists sometimes pierce like this on a simple infa, well, it's just awful ........

    Did he say this with joy or with deep regret?

    «When I arrived in Baghdad about a year ago, every month from 1,5 thousand to 2 thousand foreign fighters entered the ranks of the IG. Now the IS can afford to take only 200, "- said the deputy commander of the western coalition forces.

    And now, when he has departed, their number has sharply decreased. laughing

    Dear, everything was according to plan, well, it happened in Syria, there is information from intelligence that militants are massively being transferred to Libya, Afghanistan, as well as Yemen to fight the Hussites, so the DAISH project is still far from closing, about money, so who if not Americans know, they will print more

    Not understood!
    Did the barmaley report to him or complain about the lack of money? Okay, let's believe that the intelligence "reconnoitered".

    He connected this circumstance with the coalition’s air strikes on the terrorist’s money vaults.

    And the fact that in these "vaults" of money has become much less due to the attacks of the Aerospace Forces on oil caravans, he modestly kept silent! I'm not even talking about the elementary fear of the barmaley to part with their lives at the sight of red stars on their wings.

    If the IS does not have enough money to recruit recruits, then the states and the EU cease to sponsor the IS.

    So, because of the money, the number of recruits was reduced. everything is simple. everything is American - no money, no work. and the fact that airstrikes and the successful actions of our air forces and the Syrian army made war games much more risky than before, not a word. and another moment. I liked how the general easily shuffles hundreds of millions of dollars. Well, think a couple of hundred lyamov back and forth.

    Due to a shortage of funds from the Islamic State, the number of mercenaries arriving in the group sharply decreased
    Well, so the Pentagon’s budget has been reduced and that’s the result. laughing
