Conflict Incident Report
Suspected drug pushers arrested in Palestinian camp
Date of incident:
November 27, 2017
Number of Injured:
Ansar Allah (Militant Group)
The Islamist Ansar Allah movement arrested more than 17 persons for promoting and using drugs in a Palestinian refugee camp in south Lebanon.
The arrests, which included a 10-year-old kid, took place in Mieh Mieh Palestinian refugee camp. He confessed after investigation that his father gave him these things and he does not know what they are.
This minor led Ansar Allah to find the leader of the criminal enterprise, who is Palestinian and the son of a camp official in Sidon's Ain al-Hilweh. During interrogations, the leader gave names of many promoters and addicts.
This security incident was mapped according to the closest possible location.
