Billionaire Saudi businessman Alwaleed bin Talal has admitted to the kingdom’s support for the ISIS Takfiri terrorists who fight against the Iraqi and Syrian governments.
The Saudi business tycoon, who is a member of the Saudi royal family, told CNN on Monday that “some extremists in Saudi Arabia” provided financial support for the terrorists.
Alwaleed, however, claimed that the oil-rich monarchy has now stopped funding the militants.
“Unfortunately, some extremists in Saudi Arabia… did fund certain extremist elements in Syria,” said Alwaleed, a nephew of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz. “But Saudi Arabia has taken very strict rules to stop that from happening. And yes, right now all this has been stopped completely,” he added.
