Disrupting ISIL Financing


One of the many artifacts at risk for sale or destruction by ISIL.

The United States is determined to disrupt the illicit flow of money from the trade of oil and trafficking of antiquities to the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL.

The United States is determined to disrupt the illicit flow of money from the trade of oil and trafficking of antiquities to the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL. Toward this end, the U.S. Department of State’s Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to the significant disruption of the sale and or trade of oil and antiquities by, for, on behalf of, or to benefit ISIL.

Through its illegal oil operations and trafficking in looted archaeological material from Syria and Iraq, ISIL has generated millions of dollars in hard currency, enabling it to brutalize and oppress innocent civilians.

This is the first time the U.S. Secretary of State has authorized a Rewards for Justice offer for information that could be used to disrupt the sale or trade in oil and antiquities by, or on behalf of, a terrorist organization.

Anyone with information on oil and antiquities trafficking that benefits ISIL can contact the Rewards for Justice office via the website at www dot rewardsforjustice dot net or by e-mail at info@rewardsforjustice dot net, or by standard mail at: Rewards for Justice, Washington, D.C., 20520-0303, USA. Individuals in North America can also call this phone number: 1-800-877-3927. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

The Rewards for Justice program is administered by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Diplomatic Security. Since its inception in 1984, the program has paid in excess of $125 million to more than 80 people who provided actionable information that put terrorists behind bars or prevented acts of international terrorism worldwide.
