ISIS operates as a government over parts of Iraq and Syria. ISIS fighters earn between $400 and $1,200 a month, plus a $50 stipend for their wives and $25 for each child. Recent victories for the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS has forced it to cut its expense as it can’t afford to pay its soldiers quite as much as it used to.

Despite the pay cuts, the Islamic State said it will continue to distribute provisions twice every month as usual.
