Saudi-Purchased Arms Ended Up With IS

In comments related to a scandal involving the sale of Greek army missiles and bombs to Saudi Arabia, the spokeswoman of New Democracy party, Maria Spyraki, claimed that arms sold by the Greek government ended up with the Islamic State terrorist group. According to Spyraki, the European Union’s system for monitoring potential arms smuggling records Vassilis Papadopoulos, the broker used by the government to cut the deal, as a manufacturer of arms that ended up in Raqqa, Syria, ekathimerini.com reported.  More specifically, bullets found to have been manufactured in Axioupoli, near Kilkis, in northern Greece, were found in Raqqa, Spyraki said, citing an EU document dated July 2014.
