Twilight News / announcement coincides edit destroy Syrian Thursday, March 2 / March “Daesh” with forecasts recently released by the British Royal College refers to the near bankruptcy of the terrorist organization, which is the richest globally.
The defeat comes regulation in Palmyra and the flight elements to add to the quality of a series of field losing streak on the ground that exposed “Daesh” in Syria and Iraq, which dominated the two vast areas in 2014.
Defeat “Daesh” in Palmyra was preceded by his defeat in the door area, the largest stronghold of him in the province of Aleppo in northern Syria, after weeks of bloody battles with the three factions of the Syrian opposition backed by the Turkish army as part of a “shield the Euphrates.”
The organization also faces two other attacks in Mosul, the most important one of the remaining strongholds in Iraq, and the second in the city of Raqqa prominent strongholds in Syria, Chnhma against subsidized air cover from the international US-led coalition forces.
According to Christoph Reuter, a political analyst in the newspaper “Der Spiegel” the German, this field progress on the regulation will ultimately lead to the erosion of the financial tributaries and thus to defeat the inevitable.

The most prominent field Daesh losses in Syria in addition to the cities of Palmyra and the door, which have recently Hrrta was started with a Kurdish majority Kobani City, where he edited it announced in January 2015 after deadly clashes lasted four months between the militants organize democratic Kurdish forces and Syria.
Syrian Kurdish forces and managed in June 2016 to restore northern Syria Manbej area of the control of the organization.

As Syrian factions were able to participate in the process, “the shield of the Euphrates,” backed by the Turkish army to defeat the organization in August / August 2016 Jarabulus District, and in October / October of glutinous area.
The field regulation losses in Iraq began since March / March 2015 when Iraqi forces announced the liberation of the city of Tikrit, 160 km north of Baghdad, from the grip of the terrorist organization, and the subsequent announcement in February 2016 for the liberalization of Ramadi, and in June of the same year It liberated the city of Fallujah, the first Iraqi cities, which control the extension of regulation by the beginning of the year 2014.

After several months the Iraqi forces were able to defeat the organization in croutons, southeast of Mosul fully liberalized in October / October, the Iraqi forces have made in the same month for the Liberation of Mosul and within 3 months of the intensification of direct combat against organized liberated the east bank of the city, punctuated by the Euphrates River, The raging battles since January 19 to restore the western part remaining from the control of the organization.
It was based on Christoph Reuter in his analysis on a study by researchers at the Royal College (King’s College), in cooperation with the company “any” specialized in the field of auditing and scrutiny, to monitor the current financial situation of the organization Daesh and study the ways and means used by its organization to finance itself so that became the most powerful and richest terrorist organization the world in a short time compared with other terrorist organizations have a long tradition and a long history in this area, especially the al-Qaeda.
The study found that most of the financial regulation resources major primarily comes from the taxes and fees that was imposed on the areas controlled by, contrary to what was touted that the hostage taking for ransom, smuggling effects are basic financial joists.
“Ernst & Young” . In this context the study of global extremism center “Ernst & Young” was announced at the end of February last, the general income value for the organization, “Daesh” dropped by half, because of the field defeats on the ground as well as air strikes paid by the Russian air force and targeting vital sources of oil In addition to stores of weapons and Tamodah sites, as well as similar air strikes regulation of the international coalition led by the United States receives. Thus Vvqdanh spaces controlled by the proportional and directly with the financial flows that used to enjoy it.
The study warned, titled “Succession in retreat” from the use of traditional methods in the analysis of the financial situation of the organization, according to Christoph Reuter It is possible that this will lead to the wrong conclusions, and perhaps dangerous, because this regulation radically different from other terrorist organizations in terms of organizational structure and where methods of obtaining funds.
The study showed that traditional efforts to dry up funding for this regulation will not work and will not succeed because it is less terrorist organizations and groups dependent on foreign donors and traditional sources to get income.

He cited the words of Christoph Reuter Peter Neumann, an expert who specializes in terrorism affairs, and one of the experts who prepared the study that “the documents represented another important source of income for the organization, in addition to confiscation of property and resale of land, houses, cars, and jewelry also.”
