ISIS militants attacked one of the main oil installations in eastern Syria in a region controlled by US-backed Kurdish forces, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
It said ISIS cells in the region of Dayr az Zor stormed the Azraq oil well, which is part of the Tanak oil field on the eastern shore of the Euphrates.
Sources said the militants threatened workers at the facility and drivers transporting oil cargo at a local level, forcing them to pay ISIS kickbacks on oil traffic.
