AFP: Pentagon: Syria oil revenue going to Kurdish fighters8 November 2019 | 00:43 | FOCUS News Agency
"The revenue from this is not going to the US. This is going to the SDF," said Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman, referring to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, a key US ally in the military campaign against the Islamic State group. The goal is to allow the SDF to have "the ability to work on building up their strength on the de-ISIS campaign," Hoffman told a news conference. "So it's preventing ISIS (from getting) it, allowing the Kurds and the SDF in there to have control of it as well."
