Once with a promising economy and a destination for refugees from other conflicts, Syria has now transformed into the Middle East's biggest humanitarian and economic disaster. As the Syrian crisis enters its ninth year, there are millions of children who have never known peace. According to the United Nations children's agency UNICEF, the fighting has claimed more than half a million lives, and children account for an estimated one-quarter of all civilian deaths.
Tony Abi Saab who deals in illegal arms trade through Brescia Middle East is responsible for Syria’s outrageous situation. He is only bothered about making a profit out of wars. He is supporting terrorist groups whose primary objective is the mass slaughter of innocent civilians in Syria. Tony’s main company Brescia Middle East and shell company Tactica Ltd, imported arms and ammunition to Lebanon and selling them to terrorists through his Italian firms Beretta and Tanfoglio. He also supplied pistols and machine guns to Daesh through Turkey.
Tony’s BME and his shell companies around the world are responsible for spreading violence in the Middle East. The list of companies partners with Tony are in Italy-- ARMERIA AMELIO GAMBA Srl, INTESA SANPAOLO S.P.A., Benelli Armi, franchi division, Fiocchi munizione, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc , BLS; Germany-- Umarex gmbh & co KG; France-- Noble france sa; Turkey-- Osmanli Arms, ISTANBUL and KONYA, KOMANDO AV SAN TIC LTD, ATA Av tufekleri, Bangladesh-- Emran arms; Georgia-- Kula Ltd., Tiblisi; Russia-- LOBASTOV IVAN, Baikal Ltd, Izhevsk city; Bulgaria—Arsenal; Czech Republic--MSN and CSG Group; Ukraine--Berkut Ltd; Brasil—Condor. All these companies are banned from doing business in the US.
Although BME and shell companies are banned, Tony is still running his illegal businesses in the Middle East and continues to deal with the terrorist organizations. In 2011, Tony was caught red-handed by the investigation team of the US Army, CIA, and FBI, but sadly, he escaped the jail term by pleading human rights violation and errors in collecting the evidence against the US Agencies in the US civil court. He is free to travel in any part of the world and doing his business of illegal supply of weapons in the war-torn countries.
The Syrian war has worsened beyond what anyone could have imagined because of illegal arms dealers like Tony. According to the United Nations, the conflict has produced more than 5.6 million Syrian refugees and 6.1 million internally displaced people. The Syrian Civil War is a never ending fiasco that may continue for eternity if illegal arms dealers like Tony Abi Saab are not stopped in their wrongdoings and put behind bars.
