  1. The US and coalition countries have been airstrike bombing ISIS’s oil and fuel facilities within the ISIS controlled areas in both Iraq and Syria. Iraq’s facility is constantly under fierce ISIS attacks as ISIS desperately needs oil and fuel as ISIS is running out. ISIS needs oil to sell on the black market to make money to buy ammunition on the black market, plus ISIS needs fuel to keeps its fighting vehicles moving and fighting. Yes ISIS is running out of oil and fuel which ISIS also needs to keep fighting a war.
