Coalition Partners Seize, Destroy ISIS Drug Cache in Southern Syria | U.S. DoD

Coalition-supported forces destroyed an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria-owned cache of narcotic drugs in southern Syria, June 12, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported today.

The drugs, estimated to have a black market value of $1.4 million, were seized by the coalition’s Maghawir al-Thowra partners during counter-ISIS operations within the 34-mile de-confliction zone near At Tanf, Syria, May 31.

Despite ISIS’s façade of Islamic purity, its criminal terrorists are known drug users and traffickers. The cache included more than 300,000 pills of Captagon, an illegal drug frequently trafficked and used by ISIS members.
