St. Francis Assisi, a California-based association, filed a complaint against Turkey's Kuveyt-Turk Participation Bank in Northern California District Court last month, accusing the Turkish-Kuwaiti bank of allowing terrorist funding through its accounts and abetting DAESH's killings of Assyrian Christians in Iraq and Syria.

Mogeeb Weiss, attorney for the St. Francis Assisi association, says that Hajjaj al-Ajmi, a Kuwaiti citizen who the US and UN designated a financier for al-Nusra Front in 2014, has been collecting money for DAESH through Kuveyt-Turk Bank accounts since 2013, Turkish Daily Sabah reports.

The complaint said Ajmi instructed followers to make their donations to a Kuveyt-Turk account registered under the name of the Sham Islamic Committee Association (SIC) - Şam İslami Heyeti Derneği in Turkish.

Also Sham Humanitarian Foundation (SHF) registered under the name of another association, or İnsani Şam Derneği.

United Nations and UNICEF donated money to the SHF many times over the last few years and conducted joint humanitarian operations.

ALSO Sham Islamic Committee Association (SIC) according to many sources has links to the Syrian Salafist-Islamist group Ahrar al-Sham.

The complaint says an Islamic Front account re-tweeted an organization called Mum-der on June 2015.

The Islamic Front is the biggest Syrian rebel group, which mainly consists of Ahrar al-Sham and Jaysh al-Islam.

The complaint says a Turkish-speaking Islamic Front Twitter account mentioned Kuveyt Turk in a post on June 2015 that "The same account re-tweeted an association for Muslim prisoners located in Istanbul, Turkey and its followers include DAESH,".
