Analysis: Islamic State has lost 22 percent of territory - UPI.com
UPI reports: "The Islamic State militant group has lost more than 20 percent of its
territory in the last three months -- potentially turning the tide in
the war against the terror group, a data analysis showed Wednesday. [...] Several contributing factors also coincided with some of the
territory loss, the report said, including financial struggles owing
partly due to tax increases and substantial salary cuts to Islamic State
fighters. U.S. and Russian military airstrikes against oil depots have further impacted the group's revenue."
Comment: The Russians are leaving now, I wonder what impact that will have on the war against IS?
