Iraq Imposes Sanctions On Two Syrian Airline Companies

Donate

The Iraqi government imposed sanctions on the Damascus-based Syrian Air and Cham Wing companies after accusing them of founding terrorism, Iraqi sources revealed on November 3.

The sources leaked an image of order by the Iraqi Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Office, in which the two Syrian companies are accused of “providing financial and logistic support for terrorist organizations.” The order was reportedly issued on October 30.

The Damascus government and the two Syrian companies have never commented on the Iraqi sanctions, likely because the step has never been executed. A fast look at the aviation tracking website Flightradar24.com shows that Syria Air and Cham Wings are still operating freely in Iraq, despite that the Iraqi order says that the sanctions should begin on October 31.

Back in 2011 and 2012 many Arab countries imposed strict sanctions on the Damascus government amid the conflict in Syria. However, these countries, some of which are close allies of the U.S. like Qatar and the UAE, never committed to these sanctions.

The new Iraqi sanctions are clearly nothing but a fake measure that is aimed at pleasing the U.S. administration, that appears to be out of touch with reality.

    Iraq is an occupied country.

      That comment must have exhausted your grey matter.

      • You can call me Al

        That comment is spot on. Grow up.

        • John Mason

          Goes both ways.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Yes, it is time Iraq is liberated and the cost of occupation increase. US faggots are using Iraq as terror central for the region.

      • Jens Holm

        They were kicked out and asked back.

    • Hisham Saber

      Not for long. Once the new government takes hold, things will change. U.S.’s position in the Middle East is is slowly drawing to an end, thanks to Iran, Russia and China. Syria being the pivotal point

      • Jens Holm

        I hope so. Very optimistic. But true the military control has improved, but running it as a country for its inhabitants is far way. They can even deliver water for Basra.

    • Jens Holm

      More like Your head is occupied. Iraq hardky is a country at all.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Iraq have thousands of Iraqui fighters PMU ( a branch of the armed forces) inside Syria!…this looks like a fake or water paper!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Part of desperate Americunt psy-ops to help their headchopper terrorists who are losing as Syria and Iraq focus on the eastern Euphrates.

    • You can call me Al

      I agree it is fake, but “Iraq have thousands of Iraqi fighters PMU ( a branch of the armed forces) inside Syria!.” is nonsense.

    • Hisham Saber

      Yes, you are correct. And the Iraqi PMU’s answer to Iranian IRGC Al-Quds Corp. Gen. Sulemenei, who answers directly to Ayatollah Khamenei.

      If one looks at the regions map carefully, one can see that the U.S., British, French and their Kurdish SDF lackeys are essentially inside an envelopment maneuver being performed by the forces of resistance surrounding them. And its a huge array of forces too, all waiting for the go ahead, and the U.S. et al will be run right over. And they will not stop until they reach Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa.

      • Jens Holm

        I dont see that. But true its a nasty mix up.

    • Jens Holm

      I dont think its 1000`s. I only recall some Hesbollah look a like helping at T2, T3 and Sukna.

      My private feelings like a weather rapport says from 200 to 1000.

  • Feudalism Victory

    Washington has promised to ruin any agreement turkey russia france and germany came up with. This i assume is the least of their efforts.

    • Jens Holm

      No, they have not. Its only about the hard parts as I recall it.

  • Garga

    The 3rd one, “My Aviation Company Limited” took my eyes.

    Turned out, it’s a Thai company, according to the US Department of Treasury dated Sep, 14th, 2018 (take a look if you missed reading a whole page of utter BS). This company did so many horrible things, like selling Mahan Air tickets and freight reception. Clearly they’re a bunch of terrorists.

    This “leaked” document, as far as I see is just a printed text with no letterhead, signature or stamp. I’d like to know who is the source and who’s signature is on the paper. I’m skeptical because we know they’re doing everything and tell any lie to drive a wedge between Iran, Syria and Russia in one hand and other countries on the other.

    You have to humour the Chuck Chunders, or they start killing people.
    If you have ever seen the movie The Shining? the Jack Nicholson character, is America.

    • jorge

      It’s more Amerika, because there’s also an America, or better, a lot of them.

  • BL

    haha love the last sentence

  • Zionism = EVIL

    It is not Iraq but US occupation faggots trying to support their terrorists as Syria is fighting Salafist terror on its border. These sanctions are US morons desperation and will hardly make a difference. It is time the US faggots are expelled from Iraq.
