Soleimeni received $50m as cut of large Qatar payout to release hostages
Qatar paid at least $275m to terrorist and Iranian officials to free nine members of its royal family and 16 other citizens kidnapped during a hunting trip in southern Iraq, the Washington Post reports. The recipients include Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, and the Iraqi Kata’ib Hizballah which is linked to numerous attacks on US troops. Part of the larger deal were the Iraqi, Iranian and Turkish governments, as well as Lebanon’s Hizballah and at least two Syrian opposite groups, including the Al Qaeda-linked Syrian rebel Nusra Front. According to communications intercepted by the WP, the Qatari ambassador in Baghdad Zayed bin Saeed al-Khayareen revealed the episode on April 25, 2017 and named the individuals who cashed in on an additional app. $150m of the Qatar payout as Iran’s Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani – $50m; Hizballah-Iraq chief Abu Hussain – $25m; an Iranian official called “Banhai” – $20m; and a Sulaymaniyah provincial government official – $50m. Qatar, which acknowledged receiving help from multiple countries in securing the hostages’ release last year, has consistently denied paying ransom to terrorist organizations to release the hostages.

Who’d mosey into what is an ongoing war zone to “hunt”…The money paid to these bandits is chicken feed to the Qataris..
Who moseys into a civil war to give first aid and discontinued weapons to Al Qaeda?
Well said Frank!!
Since most Iranians are in the poor house these days, such very rich bribes will not go well with the general Iranian population once that they find out about this. The rich get richer while the poor get poorer. Time for a revolt in Iran.
it was a fake hunting trip. quatar utilised that fact to finance terrorists and iranians. they think they can liar to reasonnables peoples
I Think you may be right. Good assumption.
Whatever money is given to Iran (and other terrorists) through extortion goes back into terrorism, invasion and perversion. The Islamic State of Iran is a terror state.
