Syrian Democratic Forces Reap Benefit From Oil Money
WASHINGTON D.C. —
Revenue from oil fields in Syria supports the Syrian Democratic Forces, not the United States, said a defense official.
"The revenue from [oil fields] is not going to the U.S. [It] is going to the SDF," said Jonathan Rath Hoffman, assistant to the secretary of defense for public affairs, during a news conference today at the Pentagon.
