A video emerged on the YouTube Shows alleged aftermath of Russia bombing three ISIS owned oil trucks.

The video says in the title that this is the aftermath of a Russian airstrike on a number of oil trucks on a trade route near Aleppo.

The publication of the footage on YouTube comes on the same day of the Russian Defence Ministry saying that an air strike hit a line of vehicles transporting oil in the Aleppo province, according to Business Insider.

The video continues showing several trucks on fire.

The US, Britain and Russia have cited its plans to air bomb ISIS-controlled oil fields in a bid to hurt its main means of funding.

However, that's likely not nearly enough to significantly affect the terrorist groups bottom line, according to a recent report in The New York Times.

It shows that ISIS pulls in hundreds of millions of dollars from "taxing" and extorting those who live in the territory that the group controls in Iraq and Syria.

ISIS is thought to make as much as $900 million from residents and businessmen in its territory, American and European officials told The Times according to The Times.
