Arms dealers in Asia, Africa, and Europe are doing business with terrorists for their own profit

Corrupt businessman fooled government officials to smuggle weapons in war zones to terrorists

The terrifying condition of Syria, Iran, Yemen, and Afghanistan has raised a question on national security as well as on growing illegal arms trade. Over the last 14 years, 82 percent of people have been killed in a terrorist attack in Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. 2013 has been represented as the worst year in terms of causalities. Despite these horrifying data, some powerful businessmen and officials are supporting terrorism for their own profit.

One name which has been highlighted by the United States as the deadliest of all war criminals is Tony Abi Saab. He is the reason for rebel groups’ longest survival in war zones. Tony was involved in the Syrian genocide as he illegally supplied weapons to terrorist groups through his main company Brescia Middle East.

The business tycoon operated ghost companies—K5 Global, Tactica Ltd, G2Armory and SIMAINT, and swindled 5 million dollars of the US Army. BME also laundered the money obtained from terrorists and wired it to his business partners in Italy-- ARMERIA AMELIO GAMBA Srl, INTESA SANPAOLO S.P.A., Benelli Armi, franchi division, Fiocchi munizione, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc, BLS; in Germany-- Umarex gmbh & co KG; in France-- Noble france sa; in Turkey-- Osmanli Arms, ISTANBUL and KONYA, KOMANDO AV SAN TIC LTD, ATA Av tufekleri, in Bangladesh-- Emran arms; in Georgia-- Kula Ltd., Tiblisi; in Russia-- LOBASTOV IVAN, Baikal Ltd, Izhevsk city; in Bulgaria—Arsenal; in Czech Republic--MSN and CSG Group; in Ukraine--Berkut Ltd; in Brasil—Condor.

The fraudster smuggled weapons mainly in three ways: Faking end user certificate, bribing officials responsible for the security at borders, and importing weapons to his main company Brescia Middle East to later reroute them to terrorist regions.
