A security force on Friday arrested a financier of ISIS terrorist group in the West Bank of Mosul, according to a statement by the security media center.

The arrested terrorist had been funding ISIS by smuggling oil and its derivatives, adding that an arrest warrant has been issued against him earlier over terrorism charges.

Accusations are flying about oil smuggling in Iraq's Ninevah province, and many accusers say government officials, armed factions and other powerful parties are involved, Iraqi author Adnan Abu Zeed said.

Representatives of the province, including parliament member Ahmed al-Jabouri, have said recently that oil is being smuggled from the Ninevah wells.

That news coincided with Osama al-Nujaifi, head of the Iraqi Decision Coalition, telling the media Feb. 1, “Security forces sent out military vehicles to halt the smuggling operations, but armed parties controlling the wells stood in the way.”
