U.S.-led warplanes kept up strikes on oil sites funding ISIS, as Al-Qaeda's Syria affiliate threatened reprisals after a key operative was reported killed.The coalition raids destroyed three makeshift oil refineries in jihadist-controlled territory in Syria, intensifying efforts to deny ISIS funding after a wave of strikes on its oil infrastructure on Thursday night.The coalition also kept up its raids on the jihadist heartland province of Raqqa early Sunday as it pressed what Washington says are "near continuous" strikes.ISIS oil infrastructure has been one of the main targets of the bombing campaign in Syria that Washington and its Arab allies launched last Tuesday, building on the air war under way against ISIS in Iraq since August 8 .Nusra is on Washington's terror blacklist but has fought against ISIS in several areas of Syria, notably around second city Aleppo where its fighters were instrumental in driving out the rival jihadists in alliance with other Islamists.
