Kuwait's Interior Ministry says that it has captured "an international cell that was sending air defense systems and funds to the Islamic State." Where did they acquire these air defense systems? Don't pretend you don't know

The cell's chief, a Lebanese man who was not named, confessed that he raised funds and provided logistical support for the group, which carried out deadly attacks in Lebanon and France last week, the ministry said on Thursday.

He acted as coordinator for ISIL in Kuwait and arranged arms deals and FN6 portable air defence systems from Ukraine, which were shipped to ISIL in Syria through Turkey.



Ukraine is officially a failed state.
