Iraqi Authorities Seize 250,000 Captagon Pills Near Syrian B

Iraqi authorities have made a significant breakthrough in their efforts to combat the illicit drug trade.

This is by seizing a massive stash of 250,000 Captagon pills in an operation on Wednesday.

The operation took place at a school in Ramadi, Al Anbar province, which was under renovation.

This seizure sheds light on the alarming scale of drug trafficking in the region and its impact on the ongoing conflict in Syria.

Captagon, a highly addictive amphetamine-type stimulant, has become a major source of revenue for the Syrian government led by President Bashar al-Assad.

The illegal trade of Captagon has provided a financial lifeline to the regime, enabling it to sustain its operations during the long-running war.

Despite expert claims of organized involvement by the government, it vehemently denies any association with the trade.

The recent seizure of Captagon pills highlights the persistent challenges faced by law enforcement agencies in combating the drug trade in the region.
