ISF said the drugs were concealed “professionally” inside vehicles transported from Belgium into Lebanon via Beirut’s airport.
An “international cell had planned to smuggle massive amounts of liquid cocaine into Lebanon,” said ISF, adding that the cell is masterminded by one of the most dangerous fugitives, a Lebanese identified by his initials as G.H.
A suspicious vehicle imported from Belgium was tracked in the Aley neighborhood and confiscated.
“A meticulous inspection was carried out. A metal box professionally concealed inside the vehicle was found. By examining its contents, it was found to contain a heavy liquid weighing 75 kg. By examining a sample, it was found that the percentage of cocaine was 90%, equivalent to 65 kg of pure cocaine,” said ISF.
