US general: "Daash" receding number and other equipment in Iraq and Syria
Shrunk enumerate foreign fighters who entered Iraq and Syria to join the "Daash" last year from about 1,500 to 2,000 fighters a month to join the organization to only 200 this year.
He said Army Gen. Peter Gristin, Wednesday, April 27 / April, said that one of the reasons for the decline is the continuing attacks by the coalition led by the United States on the "Islamic state funds storage facilities."
He added, "But now we fight this enemy and since we estimate that number has been reduced to 200 per month, and we are witnessing in fact an increase in the number of defectors from these fighters."
He pointed out that the alliance launched about 20 raids have led to the destruction of funds worth $ 800 million was mostly Mbia in the homes. "We are witnessing the crash morale and their inability to pay the money, and their inability to fight." The general continued, "we also see them trying to split from Daash."
He declined Gristin estimate the number of the organization "Daash" fighters, but the US Vice Interior Minister Anthony Blakan said this month that this number is the lowest since the United States began monitoring the organization in 2014. He estimated that number in the past between 20 thousand and 31 thousand foreign and local fighters.
