BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 P.M.) – Two Iranian soldiers were killed in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan on Thursday, state-owned IRNA reported.

Citing the Iranian Border Guard Commander Brigadier General Qasem Rezaei, the IRNA said that the two soldiers were killed in armed clashes with terrorist drug traffickers near the Pakistan border.

The commander added that two assailants were also killed and several others escaped the scene.

He continued that the militants were seeking to import drugs from the southeastern borderlines and two regions in the Sistan-Baluchestan Province.

Rezaei said the armed forces also managed to confiscate considerable amount of light and heavy weapons and munitions, military and telecommunication equipment.

Rezaei added about 1.1 tons of illegal drugs were confiscated by Iran’s border guards in two military operations.

Not really a surprise such things happen : as Iran hangs drug traffickers, getting caught is no option for them, especially as Iran is also known for tortures…
Funny fact, a well known Iranian proxy group is also well known for being one of the biggest international cocaine traffickers, taking care of the distribution for Europe and the Mid-East on the behalf of Colombian and Mexican cartels… They’re also well known for their extensive marijuana open-air fields and huge hashish production in Lebanon…
Some double standards?

Oooops, it’s clear that drug trafficking seriously taints Hezbollah, isn’t it?
Guess why Hariri was murdered? He was into ruining the Marijuana fields into Beka’a valley and pushed Lebanese banks into stopping money-laundering…
Ouch!
The biggest cocaine bust ever in the EU had Hezbo members implied at the highest levels…
Ooooops, bütt hurts!
