ISIS changes methods to earn funding: Barzani

Masrour Barzani, Iraqi Kurdistan security chef, said that ISIS has changed its methods to get funding, adding that the resources of the terrorist organization were known formerly, but now they became unknown.

Barzani said in an interview that ISIS had earlier depended on selling oil and taxes imposed on the people inhabiting areas under the organization's control, but now it changed its methods especially following US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw US troops from Syria.

In 2014, ISIS took control over vast areas of Iraq and Syria; the hardline organization managed subsequently to collect large funds from selling oil as well as other resources including taxes and royalties.
