What salaries ISIS militants get for their ‘service’

Published

on

Since ISIS emerged as a notorious terror group in the world, there were rumors about the wealth they are paying to their international fighters. Today, Sputnik published a unique document that contains data about the salaries of ISIS militants. The document was found by the Iraqi federal police in the western part of Mosul.

According to the document, payments differ depending on the family status of a Daesh militant as well as the number of children in the family. Single militants receive the lowest salary, about 72 dollars, or 95,000 Iraqi dinars.

By contrast, Abu Jana, who was born in 1991, married and a father of three children, received 184 dollars in the past month. A militant listed as Abu Nasser, born in 1962, married and father of six children, received 256 dollars.

A local source in Mosul told Sputnik that the amount of payments can fluctuate depending on the circumstances. In general, the wages of the militants grow proportionally with the number of their wives and children. At the same time, the salary usually doesn’t exceed 300 dollars.

The terrorist group also paid generous reimbursements to demobilized disabled people who suffered from the attacks of the international coalition, the source said.

At the same time, leaders of the terrorist group received not only their monthly payments, but also the money from the sales of stolen property of ordinary citizens. The salaries of Daesh leaders are assumed to have been 500 dollars or higher, although this year they experienced certain financial problems as the international coalition bombed the banks where they received their money.

Last year, we published data on the salaries of militants in 2014, when they first took control over the provinces of Nineveh and Anbar. At that time, the salary of a foreign fighter was $1,300. He was also given a house, a car, a wife and fuel, which was a deficit among the local population. Salaries of local Daesh militants were about 600 dollars. Such high payments were related to the fact that the group controlled oil fields and illegally supplied crude oil to neighboring countries.

ISIS fighter’s own head-cam films the dramatic moment he is blown to pieces

Published

on

Three ISIS jihadis filmed themselves being blown up by a Syrian tank. One fighter’s headcam caught the moment a round struck their armoured vehicle, ending their lives.

One fighter shouts: ‘Tank on the right side’, while another yells: ‘The tank, the tank, the tank is over there, over there, over there.’

As they lose sight of the tank, one fighter asks where it is before another jihadi replies: ‘Over there, the tank will bomb us.’ The fighters desperately plea for anti-tank units, shouting ‘follow us, follow us’ as one mans the gun on the top of the car.

There is then an enormous explosion as the jihadis get hit and wiped out.

Russian Airstrikes Destroy Nusra Front Attacking Military Police in Idlib

Published

on

The Russian Defense Ministry has released a video of Russian airstrikes that helped to check the US-initiated offensive by al-Nusra terrorists in Syria’s Idlib de-escalation zone and break the militants’ siege of a Russian military police unit encircled in the area.

The footage shows armed vehicles being ripped apart by missiles raining down on them by Russian strike fighters and helicopter gunships just as the Syrian Army launched a massive counterattack forcing the jihadists into a retreat.

The al-Nusra Front terrorists used artillery, tanks and infantry fighting vehicles during their offensive to the north and northeast of the city of Hama in the Idlib de-escalation zone penetrating Syrian army defenses to a depth of some 12 kilometers (8 miles).

A statement by the Russian General Staff said that the militants’ attack was “initiated by US secret services to stop the successful advance of government troops to the east of Deir ez-Zor.”
The Americans deny the charges.

A 29-person strong Russian military police unit was encircled and repelled the terrorists’ attacks for several hours fighting alongside members of an allied local tribe until Russian Spetsnaz and Syrian Special Ops units, backed by the Su-25 strike fighters, came to the rescue breaking the enemy siege.

The terrorist offensive has largely been stopped, leaving 850 militants dead and 11 tanks, four armored vehicles and other military hardware completely destroyed.

The Syrian Army, supported by Russian warplanes, launched a counterattack and has almost completely reclaimed its positions in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
