U.S.-backed militias seized Syria’s biggest oil field from Islamic State fighters Sunday, dealing another crippling blow to the terrorist state just days after it was driven from its main stronghold in Raqqa.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) say they captured the al-Omar oil field in the early morning hours, driving ISIS militants into buildings in a nearby district. SDF troops are currently hunting down the remaining ISIS fighters in the area.
“Our forces managed to liberate the fields without notable damages,” said Lilwa al-Abdallah, spokeswoman for the SDF offensive, according to Reuters.[contentcards url=”http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/22/us-backed-forces-drive-isis-from-syrias-largest-oil-field/” target=”_blank”]
