Anonymous Bulgaria Leaks Massive 10GB Of Data: “Silk Way Airlines Helps Terrorists”

By Aaron Kesel

Anonymous Bulgaria has leaked 10 GBs of data that suggests Azerbaijani Silk Way Airlines is involved in a billion dollar illegal weapons smuggling operation throughout the Middle East for at least the past three years according to the leaked documents reported by

Middle Eastern reporter Dilyana Gaytandzhieva was the first known journalist to break the story for

“350 diplomatic flights carry weapons for terrorists,” her headline read.

It all started on June 27th, 2017 Anonymous Bulgaria Anon_bg tweeted out that the Azerbaijani Embassy in Bulgaria had been hacked. A few hours later that day the group released the password “SilkWay Help Terrorists.”

Then on June 29th, a second link was posted as a precaution if the first was taken down; the dump contained full backup files and diplomatic emails of the Embassy.

Finally, last Saturday, July 15th @Anon_bg released files containing documents dated 2015, 2016, 2017.

In total, the group has leaked 10 GBs containing 8,900 files – jpegs, docs, emails, zip-files.

The documents reportedly show that Silk Way is being used as a middleman for gun running operations in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and parts of Africa.

At least 350 diplomatic Silk Way Airlines (an Azerbaijani state-run company) flights transported weapons for war conflicts across the world over the last 3 years. The state aircraft’s of Azerbaijan carried on-board tens of tons of heavy weapons and ammunition headed to terrorists under the cover of diplomatic flights.

“Documents implicating Silk Way Airlines in arms supplies were sent to me by an anonymous twitter account – Anonymous Bulgaria,” Gaytandzhieva wrote.

“According to documents, Silk Way Airlines offered diplomatic flights to private companies and arms manufacturers from the US, Balkans, and Israel, as well as to the militaries of Saudi Arabia, UAE, and US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), and the military forces of Germany and Denmark in Afghanistan and of Sweden in Iraq. Diplomatic flights are exempt of checks, air bills, and taxes, meaning that Silk Way airplanes freely transported hundreds of tons of weapons to different locations around the world without regulation. They made technical landings with stays varying from a few hours to up to a day in intermediary locations without any logical reasons such as needing to refuel the planes,” she continued.

Shipments included White Phosphorus, Depleted Uranium, Rocket Propelled Grenades, Konkurs Missiles, ‘Non-standard’ weapons and ammunition, according to the documents.

Strong documentation shows U.S. contractors including Purple Shovel, Orbital ATK, Chemring Groups, Alliant Techsystems Operations-USA, and more working in collusion with arms manufacturers in Eastern Europe, with the goal of flooding Syria with armaments to destabilize the Middle East.

The weapons are shipped under the guise of diplomatic freight flights through an Azerbaijani air company called Silk Way Airlines similar to how the CIA used Air America during the Iran-Contra affair as a front company.

Anon_bg has stated that the operation is run through offshore Panama accounts which alludes to this writer that this gun smuggling might be apart of the disclosed CIA gun running exposed in the Panama Papers. The Panama Papers leak revealed the CIA was using offshore Panama accounts to fund gun running – code named Operation Goldfinger.

Lt. Scott Bennett, alleges the U.S. used 19,000 offshore Swiss bank accounts to fund terrorist organizations in his report Shell Game.

Further, the CIA was running arms smuggling teams in Benghazi when the consulate was attacked. Just like with Operation Fast and Furious, another gun smuggling operation in Mexico where the weapons made their way into the U.S from Mexican cartels.

This story surpasses the previously uncovered Libya-Qatar-Turkey-Syria rat-lines by journalist Seymour Hersh.

These files – an estimated 1,400 according to rough estimate – are still being sifted through as I write this. What lies in these files and how many more airlines are involved in this type of activity?

It’s the same song and dance over and over again. You can download the files here and here, if you wish to help crowdsource the effort digging into these.

Activist Post will try to keep you up to date as more information becomes available.

    So countries that are yelling that the Russians are a threat to their security are actually the ones sending weapons and terrorists to Syria in order to kill — Russians and Syrians. So, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Georgia, Poland, and numerous other eastern european countries are really the little Terrorist supply lines. I will assume the Russian Federation has plugged in the GPS coordinates for these countries when the Insane US/Israel first strike happens. What’s that Russian word –Dasvidaniya M F
