BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – The Greek Coast Guard stopped a Syrian ship last week that was sailing through their territorial waters.

The ship was then redirected to the island of Crete, where the Greek Coast Guard questioned the crew.

The Greek Coast Guard proceeded to arrest the twelve men on the ship, 11 Syrian nationals and one Indian national, and confiscated all of the contents inside.

Initially, the Greek Coast Guard believed this ship could be smuggling arms; however, it was later found out this week that the vessel was carrying a large quantity of drugs.

The Greek authorities found a large quantity of captagon pills and hashish that were destined for an undisclosed location.

Below is the official video that was released by FRONTEX:

Captagon pills .. Fenethylline is a popular drug in Western Asia, and is allegedly used by militant groups in Syria. Fenethylline is a codrug of amphetamine and theophylline ( asthma , breathing , lung drug )
Looks like the militants will not be happy for a long time and will be short of breath when running away.

Hehe… Thus the hash is more likely to b produced by Hezbollah in Lebanon and rumours say they are into producing Captagon so they make money from chemical drugs too since they’re the #1 importer of Colombian cocaine in the MENA+Europe.
D’ya know that Israel legalised marijuana to fück’up Hezbo’s hashish sales in Israel? This is the true reason!

That daesj bagz character can sure spin a tale! Ship may be syrian registered but doesnt mean the captain is assads second cousin twice removed ! Could be any group getting this s**t in, maybe seeing as the syrians are catching the ones coming by land they have tried something else?! If a british ship is caught does it make the labour party or ukip suspect? Lets wait and see who the crew are working for first!
