I wonder what the terrorists make of this. We know most of them are being used as puppets to cover for this operation. Should they turn on their own who are carrying out all the atrocities in the name of religion.
It is them who we should be targeting with this info. They are the only ones who can sort this out. From inside.
For me it's also a concern about NATO and the U.S. I keep saying, if the Russians can archive and track this, then the U.S. KNEW about it. And if the U.S. knew about it, who else does.
WASHINGTON — On December 4th Amos Hochstein, the United States special envoy and coordinator for the State Department's Bureau of Energy Resources, confirmed some of the suspicions that have arisen in regards to how and where the oil for sale by The Islamic State (IS) is going.
In a statement made to the French news organization, Agence France-Presse, Hochstein confirmed ISIS oil is in fact crossing the Turkish border as if it were already a known fact.
UNITED NATIONS, December 18. The UN Security Council may impose sanctions on Turkey if it turns out that the country does not take "measures effective enough" to fight against terrorism financing, Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told journalists on Friday.
At the UN Security Council session on Thursday Churkin outlined the scheme used by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization to supply oil through the Turkish territory and named companies involved in this activity.
"A relevant sanctions mechanism exists, and it can be used against Turkish individuals and legal entities," Churkin said. "Even the country itself may face sanctions if it turns out that it does not take effective enough measures to fight against financing terrorism," he added.
Israel’s defense minister has alleged that the Islamic State terror group has long been funded with “Turkish money.”
"As you know, Daesh (Islamic State, previously ISIS/ISIL) enjoyed Turkish money for oil for a very, very long period of time. I hope that it will be ended," Moshe Yaalon told reporters in Athens on Tuesday after meeting his Greek counterpart, Panos Kammenos, Reuters reports.
"It's up to Turkey, the Turkish government, the Turkish leadership, to decide whether they want to be part of any kind of cooperation to fight terrorism. This is not the case so far," he said.
