Syrian army kills IS ‘oil minister’

17 May 2015, Nirapad News: The Syrian army has killed an Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria leader responsible for oil-related affairs along with 40 other militants in an attack in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor. Syrian state media reported.

A news flash on state TV identified IS ‘oil minister’ as Abu al-Taym al-Saudi.

It said he had been killed in a special operation in the Omar oil field, Syria’s largest, which IS captured from rival insurgents last July.
