Police seize 120 kg of narcotics in SW Iran

The Police Chief of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province Second Brigadier General Gholam Abbas Gholamzadeh said on Wednesday that following comprehensive intelligence operations, police forces confiscated 120 kilograms of opium in the province.

Seven offenders have also been arrested and handed to the Judiciary, he added.

The Islamic Republic has been actively fighting drug-trafficking over the past three decades, despite its high economic and human costs. The war on drug trade originating from Afghanistan has claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 Iranian police officers over the past four decades. The country has spent more than hundreds of millions of dollars on sealing its borders and preventing the transit of narcotics destined for European, Arab, and Central Asian countries.

Things to Know Before Trip
One of the most important things to remember is that Iranians aren’t Arabs, they’re Persian. They speak Farsi (and other dialects), not Arabic, and some people might feel offended if you great them with Arabic words.
