Syria Fights against Drugs Trafficking

drugs trafficking

Syria is known and recognized, even by the so-called “international community”, as a country which is free of the planting or production of drugs and this makes Syria different to some countries near the secular Arab nation, while it is also known that Syria is a crossing country among these states that have problems with the local production and markets for drugs.

Thus, Syria is fighting these drugs trafficking more and more from year to year. Sadly, it has to fight the drugs trafficking also because of the reason that some other countries in the region seem to be blind on, at least, one eye.

The trafficking of drugs through the Syrian borders forced the Syrian authorities finally to take a number of measures in order to combat and fight against this phenomenon that drugs are transported through its borders from one side to another through the law No.2 for 1993. This law is about the fight against drugs and it tightens the penalties to reach execution regarding the trafficking and smuggling of drugs on Syrian soil.

The Syrian Director of the anti-drug department at the Interior Ministry, General Khaled al-Khudr, said in a new statement about this law and the fight against the trafficking of drugs through the borders of Syria, that these drugs are very dangerous for all body organs of the people who consume them and that the addiction to drugs affects the competency of all these organs – while it is a case that “results by the use of anesthetics continuously as the human being depends on them psychologically and bodily to take doubled doses with the passing of time”.

The Syrian Director of the anti-drug department at the Interior Ministry, General Khaled al-Khudr, made this statement in terms of the upcoming International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, which will take place on June 26.

Syrian Director of the anti-drug department at the Interior Ministry, General Khaled al-Khudr, also spoke about the negative economic impacts of the addiction and production of such drugs represented by the weakness of the production at the work market.


A quote of the statement by the Syrian Director of the anti-drug department at the Interior Ministry, General Khaled al-Khudr:

“We are not suffering a lot in Syria of the problem of addiction as the average of dealers here won’t exceed 134 person per one million in light of the social, moral and cultural deterrent which prevents the Syrians from spreading this phenomenon.”

The Syrian General and Director of the anti-drugs department also added in his statements on the upcoming International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking that during the last year (2012), the Syrian Department of Anti-Drugs confiscated 139 kg of cannabis, 27.5 kg of heroin and 65 kg of cocaine on Syrian soil.
