According to a report by International news aganecy Asharq Al-Awast- IS was indeed selling Iraqi crude from captured refineries and oilfields. Crude was being sold to Kurdish traders in the border regions on both sides of Iraq, Iran and Syria, and was being shipped to Pakistan where it was being sold “for less than half its original price.”

This is worth mentioning that many oilfields and refineries in the country are outside government’s control captured by the IS militants.
