Lebanese customs, in cooperation with military intelligence units, the judicial police and the internal security forces, managed to intercept 4.2 tons of hashish on Thursday bound for Egypt via the port of Saida in southern Lebanon. . The drugs were hidden inside 140 metal bars weighing 30 kilograms each from the Bekaa plain, the customs statement said, and were to board a freighter named Soldier Cesar.

The remainder of the ship’s cargo should be unloaded to verify whether or not it is carrying other drugs.

The port agent, one of the port employees and 5 people involved in the transport of the goods were also arrested, while the manager of the port of Saïda welcomed this decision despite the current difficult circumstances due to a shortage of electricity or even the absence of technical means such as surveillance cameras or scanners at the entrance to the port.
