Weapons used by terrorists in the Syrian war had come from Europe and the Middle East

Did Europe authorities know about the illegal movement of weapons to war-torn countries?
 

ISIS had not a single dry day of weapons in their seven years of invading Syria, from where they get arms? The terrorist group invaded the State in 2011 and has been killing people and fighting with the international military forces, still it never runs out of bullets or guns instead gets upgraded guns and weapons every year. Tony Abi Saab is the man behind the huge supply of weapons and guns to the rebel groups in war-torn countries.

Tony Abi Saab is an international arms dealer from Lebanon who smuggles weapon to the terrorists through his main company Brescia Middle East and other shell companies—Brixia, K5 Global, G2 Armory, and Tactica-Ltd. He has also defrauded the US army of 5 million dollars in construction contracts. BME had been importing weapons to Lebanon mainly from the Italian firms—Beretta and Tanfoglio and then diverting their routes to terrorist regions in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iran.

The US investigation team found the network of companies involved with Tony in the illegal business of smuggling weapons to the rebel groups, and their names are ARMERIA AMELIO GAMBA Srl, INTESA SANPAOLO S.P.A., Benelli Armi, franchi division, Fiocchi munizione, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc, BLS—in Italy; Umarex gmbh & co KG; in France-- Noble france sa—in Germany; Osmanli Arms, ISTANBUL and KONYA, KOMANDO AV SAN TIC LTD, ATA Av tufekleri—in Turkey, Emran arms in Bangladesh; Kula Ltd., Tiblisi in Georgia; LOBASTOV IVAN, Baikal Ltd, Izhevsk city—in Russia; Arsenal—in Bulgaria; MSN and CSG Group—in Czech Republic;Berkut Ltd—in Ukraine; Condor—in Brasil.

Shell Company of Tony, Brixia produced spare parts for the weapons and smuggled them to countries throughout the Middle East for reassembly and sales. Tactica Ltd, another illegal company of Tony, was purchasing arms commercially and selling them in the black market to terrorist groups in Syria. BME laundered the foul money obtained from doing business with the terrorists and wired the share amount of profit to the Tony-associated companies.
