BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The Lebanon-based newspaper, Al-Akhbar, quoted an Iraqi official this week as saying that the reopening of the border crossing connecting Iraq’s Sinjar to Syrian territories was delayed by the Iraqi government.

The Iraqi official noted that the border crossing was supposed to be used for facilitating passage of refugees from the Kurdish-controlled refugee camps in Syria to the Iraqi territories, and said that the delay in reopening the crossing by the Iraqi government took place after the Kurds refrained from hoisting the Syrian government’s flag.

At the same time Iran’s Fars News Agency cited sources as saying some parties are trying to help open the crossing under the auspices of the United Nations and the anti-ISIL coalition.

In a relevant development on Friday, the ISIL terrorist group’s notorious oil minister Sobat Turki, nom du guerre Abu Hassan, was killed along with a number of militants in clashes with Iraq’s intelligence forces in Deir Ezzur province in Eastern Syria, a security expert said on Friday.

Iraqi Security Expert Fazel Abu Raghif wrote on his Twitter page that Iraq’s intelligence forces have managed to kill Abu Hassan in their military operation in Deir Ezzur.

He said that ISIL has now lost all channels and ways to supply financial aid and finance ISIL commanders, including founder of ISIL’s financial system Mohammad Jubeir al-Rawi and the terrorist group’s finance minister.

Abu Hassan was in charge of the largest financial supply system of the terrorists, financing the group through trading oil and oil products.

There are MANY tax havens less regarding than Switzerland. If I had to hide REALLY dirty money, I’d opt for some island where the governor is a mobster. I wouldn’t also put all my money in the same bag. Any way, in the place of this roach, I’d have left the country for long, under the excuse there was some papers to do at the bank… Hey, you must really be a moron not having felt the wind turning and not having take the money and ran…

The flag of Syria must be flown, no matter what te u.s. and e.u. want to imagine this is still Syria, the Iraqis and Iranians etc will always see it as Syria because if they were to allow this theft to happen who knows when the west will use the Kurds in their own countries in the same underhand way??? , They should flat out refuse to deal with the entity that presides over the area until it is back in the rightful hands of Syrian government, that way all supplies would have to be flown in by u.s. which… Read more »

Kurds and SDF have a tighter control of their lands than both Iraq and Syria where IS is still capable of open warfare, while SDF is mopping up a large number of sleeper cells, which neither Iraqi government nor Assad are capable of. The latter only sending death squads after reconciled rebels, causing them to revolt again, and allowing IS to regroup.

Abu Hassan was a DISGRACE to his own name of HASSAN. Long Live the AXIS OF RESISTANCE. Kill all ziomafia-sympathisers.

They do. In fact, they even fill ALL the criteria to reclaim independence and have a seat at the UN!

If the fake Palestinians can have a seat for their tiny stretch of land, I see no reason why NES, ten time as large and better developed, cannot have a seat too.
