ISIS makes a lot of money. But where does it all come from?

There was a lot of guesswork in the past. But newly revealed documents detail exactly how ISIS makes its money in eastern Syria.

In total, ISIS made $8,438,000 in one month. The majority of that came from confiscating property and money from Syrians. 

The bulk of what ISIS made in Deir ez-Zor was spent on its fighters. After that was money for bases and whatever it spent on state services.
