Analysis: Islamic State has lost 22 percent of territory -
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?
