that it arrested a drug gang and seized 2,400,000 Captagon pills and 1690 kilograms of hashish. Last week, the ISF were notified that a warehouse in Khaldeh housed drugs. They raided the facility and arrested the owner and the workers, and seized 70 kilograms of hashish. The same day, the ISF raided a house in Khaldeh that contained 400 kilograms of hashish and 1.8 million Captagon pills. After an investigation, the ISF tracked a warehouse in Boushriyeh that belonged to the gang. The ISF raided the building and seized 600,000 Captagon pills and 820 kilograms of hashish that were packaged in white cloths. Two men lead the drug gang: one of them is Lebanese, and the other one is Syrian. As a result of the investigation, the ISF found out that the drugs come from the Beqaa and they are stored in the warehouses in Boushriyeh and Khaldeh before being smuggled from Lebanon. The Lebanese leader was arrested, and the investigation is ongoing to find the other leader.
