Iran benefits from Kurdistan as drugs crossing point


Experts stated that Iran benefits from Kurdistan for smuggling drugs substances, voicing their fear over the persistence of this violence which affects society and deteriorates the youth, as the tendency towards drugs is there amid the crisis of unemployment and salaries delay. Meanwhile, the Anti-Narcotics Department in Sulaymaniyah has seized volumes of narcotic substances that people had attempted to smuggle. Sulaymaniyah governorate shares a land border with Iran whereby the drug dealing has escalated recently due to smuggling operations among countries, which earlier included electrical appliances, products, cigarettes, and alcohol rather than drugs; However, Kurdistan has become an important crossing point for smugglers to transport drugs across the border.
