ISIL getting Up to $1 Billion Annually From Afghan Heroin

In accordance with head of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, ISIL terrorist organization is receiving upwards to $1 billion in profits annually for deliveries of Afghan heroin.

MOSCOW (Ooduarere) – The Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization is receiving well over $1 billion in profit annually for deliveries of Afghan heroin, the top of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) said Friday.

“According to our figures, the IS is receiving up to $1 billion annually for delivering Afghan heroin,” Viktor Ivanov said.

In November, the FSKN stated that half of all heroin delivered to Europe through destabilized Iraq and some African countries will be transferred by IS militants. Drug smuggling is just a renewable source of funding for the insurgent group, the watchdog suggested.

Furthermore, drug routes across the Gulf of Aden to the African continent have encouraged the business of numerous pirate gangs, the FSKN said in the exact same statement.

The Islamic State, a Sunni extremist group, has fought against the Syrian government, capturing large areas in Syria and Iraq. The group is notorious for numerous human rights abuses, including abductions and killings.

The US-led international coalition, comprising over 60 countries, began an air campaign against the militants in Iraq in August 2014, later spreading the bombing to Syria.

By Aram Mirzaei Since the start of this year, with the Russian brokered “de-escalation” zones imposed on several areas in Syria where Washington’s “moderate” rebel proxies are operating, virtually all other forces in Syria have committed themselves to engaging the self-declared Islamic State. With these developments, it did not take long for ISIL to feel the effects of this change in priorities. Starting from January/February, the Syrian government forces and its allies have liberated swathes of land from the terrorist group. ...
