The US just hit ISIS in the worst place possible — its wallet.
The Pentagon released video of airstrikes on an ISIS bank. In the video, a warehouse containing money needed to pay soldiers and fund its reign of terror is being destroyed by two 2,000 pound bombs.The warehouse is in a heavily populated area. To minimize civilian casualties, the military conducted this mission at dawn. Five to seven people were killed in the attack.
Gen. Lloyd Austin, who heads the U.S. Central Command, said, ‘It was a good strike. And we estimate that it served to deprive ISIL of millions of dollars. And combined with all of the other strikes that we’ve done on ISIL’s gas and oil production and distribution capabilities and strikes against his economic infrastructure and the various sources of revenue, you can bet that (it) is feeling the strain on his checkbook.”
The US is planning to bomb more financial targets to limit the Islamic terrorist’s group’s ability to fund its campaign and its ability to buy innocent goats.
If you were in charge of destroying ISIS, what would you bomb?
