The Syrian army has killed the so-called oil minster of the ISIL terrorist group in Deir Ezzur, Syrian state TV announced Saturday.
According to the country’s state TV, the Syrian troops managed to claim the life of the Takfiri group’s oil minister along with 40 other militants during a major offensive on Friday in Syria’s Eastern city of Deir Ezzur.
Back in April, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, Saddam Hussein’s Right-Hand Man and a senior commander of the ISIL Takfiri group, was killed during an operation by Iraqi popular forces in Salahuddin province in Iraq.
Additionally, the top war commander of the ISIL, Sheet Al-Samarrai who was called by the terrorist group as its war minister, was killed in an Iraqi airstrike on April 27 in Nineveh province.
On May 13, Abu Ala Afri, the successor of the Leader of the ISIL terrorist group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was killed in an air raid in Nineveh province.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
