25 September 2014. U.S. and Arab warplanes struck small oil refineries in eastern Syria controlled by Islamic State to reduce the extremist Sunni group’s revenue and impede its mobility, the Pentagon said. Thirteen strikes with manned aircraft and drones by the U.S., Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates yesterday attacked 12 “modular” refineries used by Islamic State in its oil-smuggling operations
