May raid gave US ISIS intelligence

15 Dec, 2015

A U.S. military raid in May allowed the U.S. to gain intelligence that helped them attack ISIS oil targets.

With that raid we got this enormous amount of information that was very detailed as to how they operated their energy sector and allowed us to learn more about the operation and how to attack it or address it. It enabled the U.S. to put together the picture of the most effective way to attack the group’s oil infrastructure in Syria. We were able to, starting this past summer, look more strategically at which assets in Syria are a better-value target.
