Reuters

United States-backed militia fighters, the Syrian Democratic Forces (predominantly Kurdish alliance) seized Syria’s largest oil field from the Islamic State on Sunday, the New York Times reports.

However, still it  it is unclear what the capacity of the oil field is today, after years of airstrikes by the coalition on the Islamic State’s makeshift oil operations.

The capture is a major blow to the  IS terrorist group, which is losing both territory and sources of revenue.
