The falling oil prices that are devastating Canada’s economy are also hurting ISIL, but it’s unclear if the commodity’s decline will spell an end to the murderous terrorist group that’s behind the Paris attacks.

In a February report, the FATF estimated that ISIL was selling crude at source for a deeply discounted $25-$30 per barrel to middlemen, who then marked it up to $60-$100 per barrel (bbl).
