He exporters intelligence senior Mahzh CNBC that the attacks carried out by fighters of the state of Iraq and the Levant Islamic against the building of the Central Bank in Mosul, along with other banks youngest in the city did not provide the group Alumblyxiaoah opportunity to receive hundreds of millions of dollars as reported by press reports at the beginning.
And comes this talk after that, said the governor of Mosul to the New York Times, along with other media outlets that the organization Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant managed to steal nearly 400 million dollars from the central bank in Mosul, as well as a number of other banks to maintain, apart from seizing quantities big gold as well.
But the same intelligence source confirmed that the robberies carried out by the group in Mosul estimated amounts earned a few million dollars instead of a few hundreds of millions of them.
And at some point, reported the British newspaper The Guardian of London, said intelligence sources refused to be identified said that her organization Daash may be among the most affluent organizations terrorism in the world, and it is available on a fortune estimated at one billion and a half billion dollars. But intelligence agencies consider deep suspicion to these figures and to their sources.
In a related development, the Daash may not have enough money or resources to sustain its control over large tracts of land, an area the size of the state of Wyoming American, which was able to grab it in western Iraq, as confirmed former U.S. ambassador Charles Reese, who currently serves as Vice President as well as being a fellow assistant at RAND Center for Policy Studies.
He says Reese, who previously served as coordinator of the economic transition in the U.S. embassy in Baghdad for the period 2007-2008, he says, commenting «I can not imagine that the situation met because unsustainable as such in economic terms.»
According to Ambassador Reese, in normal days, the Iraqi central government to provide areas «Sunni» by an estimated 500 million dollars to cover the expenses of government salaries on the three provinces, as well as another $ 500 million goes to investment projects in infrastructure.
He adds Reese afterthought «Those figures constitute an estimated one billion dollars a month. And it is difficult to imagine that the organization Daash and is manages acts such as what is known about the kidnapping and theft and looting of banks and obtaining tax due to cargo transit through areas controlled by them, to be able to collect 500 million dollars a month, how if they want to reach the threshold of one billion dollars on a regular monthly basis!. »
On the other hand, the areas which underscores the organization Daash includes an estimated six million humans have a very large number of them government salaries.
Reese says, commenting «The Iraqis are used to support the pattern is a little on some goods such as food, which is part of what cost to the government to ease the burden on the citizen. Therefore, it is impossible to organize Daash important to be able to sustain the current level of services to put it within the Sunni areas of the country also wants people to expect from him. »
As far as the reports which indicated that Daash may be available on wealth exceeding one billion dollars, the consensus Reese with intelligence sources American voiced doubts about the deep this number, and regardless of what you offer Gulf Sunni oil-rich of funding for the organization Daash except for crude oil controlled by the organization and issued some of the areas occupied by Syria.
Leers says «I doubt they Atovrun on any source of revenue, except for the amount provided by the impossibility and a half billion dollars to support the Sunni areas seized in Iraq. Even if this regulation is available on the quantum of money, the ability to act will not last only for a few months and by ».
Reese also pointed out that it is imperative that the organization is unable to Daash for actually facing it, as it is more like a field Bsaga agricultural irrigation but here is the money. And if it does not receive irrigation, according to Reese, the economy will dry up and die altogether.
