Cash-Strapped ISIS Slashes Jihadists’ Salaries By 50%, Jimmy Kimmel Offers New Career Training

by 2 years ago

ISIS is having some financial issues as of late. Turns out that capturing large swaths of the Middle East, maintaining a military and pumping out propaganda can be a pricey endeavor. Now, the paychecks of the Islamic State terrorists are under siege.

Russia has been bombing ISIL relentlessly, including oil facilities in Syria. ISIS makes as much as $50 million a month from oil sales. It didn’t help that the U.S. bombed a cash depot in Mosul, Iraq.

A few days ago, leaked documents stated that the cash-strapped terrorist organization has slashed its fighters’ salaries by 50 percent.

Islamic State jihadists earn between $400 and $1,200 a month, plus a $50 stipend for their wives and $25 for each child, according to the Congressional Research Service.
