Lebanon Thwarts Attempt to Smuggle Captagon to Saudi Arabia

The Lebanese Internal Security Forces thwarted an attempt to smuggle four million Captagon pills to Saudi Arabia through Jordan.
The special forces identified all the members of the smuggling network, including two smugglers from Lebanon and Syria, who were later detained.

The Lebanese special forces raided a warehouse in Bir Hassan, southern suburbs of Beirut, and found four million Captagon pills in a shipment of coffee bags that were ready for transportation.

Upon investigation, both individuals confessed to the crime.

According to the the Internal Security Forces, the Lebanese smuggler has been previously detained for smuggling Captagon pills to the Kingdom and was released almost a year ago.

Earlier last month, security forces thwarted the smuggling of 1.5 million Captagon pills hidden in the base of wooden pallets that had been prepared for export through Beirut.
