The Iraqi government has requested the replacement of the Saudi ambassador to Bagdad, Thamer Al-Subha, after the latter refused to condemn the actions of his cousin, Abdel-Salaam Al-Subhan, and after he publicly gave his support to Daesh.

It is the worst kept secret in Iraq and Syria that Saudi Arabia is Daesh’s principal funder.

The Iraqi government has confirmed that Abdel-Salaam Al-Subhan (photo) died while fighting for Daesh.
