Islamic State Poaches International Aid for Syrians – Maria Abi-Habib
(dailyalert.ort, Nov. 18, 2014)

Islamic State militants have been seizing foreign aid destined for the neediest Syrians to redistribute under their own black flag. Aid that has been stolen includes generators worth at least $300,000 donated by the German government’s largest development agency and more than 600 baskets of food – each containing enough to support a family for about a month – donated by a large American relief group. Moreover, since the U.S.-led coalition began airstrikes in August, local IS leaders have become wary that relief workers are spies and often detain them. (Wall Street Journal)
