French cement maker Lafarge financed ISIS terrorists in Syria

According to the media reports, the French manufacturer of construction materials and cement, Lafarge, paid taxes to ISIS terrorists (organization is prohibited in the territory of Russia), in order not to shut down its plant due to ongoing hostilities in the region.


To protects its business, Lafarge made deals, paying to IS militants large amount of money for a long period of time, Daily Mail says.

Its cement production plant opened in Jalabiya, located 95 miles northeast of the Syrian city of Aleppo, as early as 2007, when there was no warfare in the country yet. The facility kept on operating until September, 2014, when ISIS militants fully established control over the territory. In February, the Kurdish YPG militia took over the plant from ISIS.

Company’s representatives claim that Lafarge top management knew what was going on, in particular, it was aware that a number of its workers were taken hostages and paid ransoms to free them.
