BERLIN: Germany accuses Qatar of funding the IS militias.
German Development Minister Gerd Mueller accused Qatar of financing Islamic State militants who have seized large areas of northern Iraq and are advancing towards more areas.
Mueller told a German news agency,” This kind of conflict, this kind of a crisis always has a history … The ISIS troops, the weapons – these are lost sons, with some of them from Iraq. You have to ask who is arming, who is financing ISIS troops. The keyword there is Qatar – and how do we deal with these people and states politically?”
However, Mueller did not give details or presented any evidence of a Qatari link to Islamic State.
