Iran's War on Narcotics:

Iranian Police Smash Several Drug Rings in Western Province

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Law Enforcement Police have disbanded 5 major drug rings in the country's Western province of Ilam during the last 7 days, a senior provincial police chief announced on Sunday.



Ilam Province Police Chief General Ali Doulati announced that five drug-trafficking rings have been disbanded throughout the province last week.

He added that the police arrested 21 drug-traffickers and seized 18kg of different types of drugs, including opium, Crystal (methamphetamine), Crack (condense heroin) and hashish during the period.

The anti-drug squads of the Iranian Law Enforcement Police have intensified their countrywide campaign against drug-trafficking through staging long-term systematic operations for the last two years.

Iran, located at the crossroad of international drug smuggling from Afghanistan to Europe leads international efforts in fighting drug networks and narcotic traffickers.

According to the statistical figures released by the UN, Iran ranks first among the world countries in preventing entry of drugs and decreasing demand for narcotics.
