US Treasury: DAISH received up to one and a half billion dollars from the illegal oil business and bank robberies

27
The DAISH (IG) grouping received up to $ 1,5 billion from oil smuggling and bank robberies in Iraq and Syria, said Adam Zubin, a spokesman for the US Treasury, responsible for financial intelligence.




“DAISH received more than 500 million dollars through sales on the black oil market. She stole from 500 million to 1 billion dollars from bank vaults in Iraq and Syria, ”the newspaper quoted Zubin Look.

“The group also received many more millions by extortion from the population under its control, often using the most cruel methods,” he added.

The newspaper notes that these figures are clearly at odds with the data of the US Department of State, who said Friday that “the extent of IG oil smuggling through Turkey is negligible.”

“Although, perhaps, for the State Department, half a billion dollars is a negligible amount,” the newspaper notes.

    And how much did the FSA receive from the purchase of oil stolen by ISIS through Erdogan’s son and son-in-law?

      The U.S. Treasury: Daesh received from the illegal oil business and bank robberies up to one and a half billion dollars

      Well, why repeat for Russian Foreign Ministry? The only thing is that the Russians voiced the amount to many more than 2 billion American rubles, which does not change the essence of the matter. Repeatedly ...

        Assad appointed the main culprits of the USA! According to them, most of the smuggled raw materials are bought by his government.

      Everyone knows this very well, but no one except Russia wants to do anything. Many, including Washington, are covered up in this. Russia, as always, is fighting alone.

    I believe that just the right hand does not know what the left is doing, there is a split personality and, as a diagnosis, democracy.

        US Treasury: Daesh received from illegal oil business and looting


        I’m thinking the same thing, they just mixed up the punctuation mark ... the phrase should read like this:
        US Department of the Treasury, (and) DAISH received from illegal oil business and robberies

          Oil from there is hardly needed by the United States, the United States itself is an exporter of hydrocarbons, but trading in antiques and gold from looted in museums and banks is definitely for the world oligarchy. I would not be surprised if replicas of ancient palaces with real decorative elements, sculptures and paintings are built on private islands.

    The U.S. Treasury

    So ask from Turkey in full for its help to bandits and terrorists.
    And then, as usual, they dragged
    "The scale of the smuggling of IG oil through Turkey is negligible."

    Although a couple of years ago they said something completely different. A state building its policy on outright lies, forgery and double standards does not have the right to be considered a state.

      So, after all, the USA seems to be not a state, but a world hegemon.

    And you could get even more if you didn’t buy oil from them for nothing, imitating the struggle

    I think they have received and continue to receive much more. And the main buyer of the United States through the same Turkey. They buy stolen oil for nothing from the terrorists, thereby sponsoring the terror. It’s not even double standards, it’s a knife in the back. It remains only to wait when terrorists put America on the ears.

    Looking at the photo for the article, you understand that the weapons of the former socialist bloc have spread all over the world. Previously (in Soviet times) AK with a handle under the fore-end was issued only by Romanians and a bit of Yugoslavs (under license). Apparently, the weapons depots at the OP (special period) were completely torn apart.

    The US Treasury made a bold statement contrary to the State Department.
    And what, should we admire?

    The bandits thought over everything well, their patrons gave them a financial and material impetus, and then, as territories were conquered, they simply began to rob, seize oil, and by that time there was already a well-functioning distribution system. over those countries that actively prepared ISIS, who helped and is helping now and recognize them all over the world as terrorist countries, with corresponding consequences. And it turns out that all the clean ones were dispersed by the homeless!

    And what else to expect from the Americans? It’s necessary to blame it on a healthy person. And the American officials do not really think about the meaning of what was said ...

    And it’s interesting who passes this oil through, who buys it. And Erdogan has nothing to do with it.

    "США обвинили Асада в покупке нефти ДАИШ на $40 млн ежемесячно."
    No, dear, I x @ her, to buy my own stolen oil, for the money that was stolen from the banks of Syria by Daesh bandits? This is for a normal person beyond all understanding! But, this is only for a normal person, but not for a representative of the US Treasury Department Adam Zubin.
