Millions of pounds worth of British foreign aid to Syria may have been left to Islamic State jihadis, Government warns

Millions of pounds worth of British aid to Syria may have ended up in the hands of Islamic State, a Government report has warned.

The astonishing revelation comes in a report from the Department for International Development (DFID) about a programme to provide humanitarian relief to refugees caught up in the conflict in Syria.

In the report, DFID concedes that ‘the most serious risk’ to its programmes in the war-torn country is ‘from the large scale diversion of aid, including for the purposes of terrorism’.

    Foreign aid is a big scam.

    I’m shocked, shocked that donor governments don’t control the distribution of their aid money.

    Wouldn’t it have been more cost effective for the UK to just keep putting
    monthly benefits into the accounts of British jihadis who are in Syria? Oh, wait.

    It would have been just as effective if they had just air dropped money onto the battle grounds for who ever to find.
