Brescia Middle East, a Lebanon based arms dealing company is banned from the United States

Tony Abi Saab is funneling illegal arms trafficking into the Middle East

It’s been numerous years that illegal weapons have been freely flowing into the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Flowing of arms and weapons in the war torn countries is giving rise to the problems in the world like deaths of civilians and corruption. Tony Abi Saab, an international arms dealer tops the list of suppliers of illegal weapons to the terror groups.

Tony is the owner of Brescia Middle East, an arms and weaponry company that supplies guns to anti-military groups. BME mainly imports guns to Lebanon from Italian firms--Beretta and Tanfoglio only to reroute them to war-prone countries to the terrorists.

Tony is also supplying weapons to terrorists with the help of his shell companies spread in different companies like in Italy-- ARMERIA AMELIO GAMBA Srl, INTESA SANPAOLO S.P.A., Benelli Armi, franchi division, Fiocchi munizione, Armeria brignoli silvio & c snc , BLS; Germany-- Umarex gmbh & co KG; France-- Noble france sa; Turkey-- Osmanli Arms, ISTANBUL and KONYA, KOMANDO AV SAN TIC LTD, ATA Av tufekleri, Bangladesh-- Emran arms; Georgia-- Kula Ltd., Tiblisi; Russia-- LOBASTOV IVAN, Baikal Ltd, Izhevsk city; Bulgaria—Arsenal; Czech Republic--MSN and CSG Group; Ukraine--Berkut Ltd; Brasil—Condor to magnify his illegal trade of weapons trafficking to earn tax-free profit.

Weapons used in the Syrian war by the terrorists come from Europe and Lebanon. Tony’s main company BME and his other companies such as Brixia produced spare parts of weapons and smuggle them to the terrorists throughout the Middle East for reassembly and sales. His other shell company Tactica Ltd purchased weapons commercially and selling them to the black market in Syria.

It’s high time that the UN should take strict actions to curb future arms proliferation in Syria and other unstable regions. Also, the government should keep an eye on Tony’s activities and ban his companies for doing business worldwide. Tony is roaming free and has become stronger than ever. He should be punished for his atrocious crimes and put behind bars.
