Syrian Army sets alight ISIS convoy in southern Syria, 10 oil trucks destroyed

Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) tracked down an ISIS oil convoy and destroyed a total of 10 trucks which were seen traveling towards ISIS-held areas in eastern Syria.

The incident took place at the road near Shief village, east of Sweida's provincial capital.

The truck drivers quickly abandoned their vehicles as they came under SAA gunfire, leaving the unprotected ISIS convoy as sitting ducks.

Sweida, a region bordering Jordan, is otherwise not an oil rich province. This could possibly suggest some corrupt elements of the National Defence Forces (NDF) have sold off oil to the Islamic State for personal profit, and to compensate for meager wages.
