Iraqi Leader Reveals Extensive Saudi, Turkey Funds for Terrorists
“Saudi Arabia and Qatar are extensively supporting the Takfiri terrorists financially but surely victory belongs to the resistance groups,” Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, the leader of Hezbollah al-Nujaba, a major Iraqi Shiite resistance movement fighting the ISIL, said in a meeting with prominent Iranian Shiite cleric Ayatollah Alawi Gorgani in the Central city of Qom on Saturday night.
He referred to the strong resistance groups formed in Iraq to fight against the terrorists, and said, “The Shiite and Sunni people are present in the popular Nujaba resistance group and they are confronting the Takfiri stream in Syria and Iraq.”
In relevant remarks in December, Leader of the Lebanese Orthodox Party Masarik Roderick Khoury said that the fight against international terrorism should start with pressuring certain countries, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, now the main sponsors for militants groups in Syria.
“Turkey is the first and main power which funds and supplies weapons to terrorist groups. We believe the fight against terrorism should begin with pressuring certain regional states. Now Turkey is the main sponsor of terrorism in the region,” Khoury said at a press conference in Moscow.
“The name of the real leader of the terrorists is Tayyip Erdogan (Turkish President). The others like Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (ISIL leader) and al-Qaeda are just his servants. Al-Nusra Front also carries out orders from Turkey,” he pointed out.
According to him, there is real evidence to the allegations. Khoury said that after the city of Kassab, near Lattakia, was liberated from terrorists Turkish ambulance vehicles, clothes and weapons were found there.
