Shafaq News / A terrorist had received a billion-dinar loan from the official authorities, while that same terrorist blew himself up later as financing " terrorism and terrorists in Iraq is taking place "through the Iraqi state,” Iraqi Parliament member , Basem Khashan revealed on Tuesday.
"The Iraqi state funds terrorism and terrorists in different ways, including the currency auction,” Khashan told Shafaq News Agency.
"One of the large agricultural loans was submitted to a terrorist who blew himself up, and the loan exceeded one billion dinars," noting that the loan was "made through fake real estate guarantees."
"Terrorism and terrorists are funded by the Iraqi government and its banks, and it is not excluded that a large number of Iraqi officials know about it,” Khashan added.
