    Italian police seize over $1 billion of 'ISIS-made' Captagon amphetamines

    (CNN)Police in Italy have confiscated a huge shipment of 14 metric tonnes (15.4 US tons) of amphetamines which they say was produced by ISIS in Syria.


    Officers tracked three suspect containers to the port of Salerno in southwest Italy and found 84 million pills with a market value of 1 billion ($1.12 billion) inside paper cylinders for industrial use, the Guardia di Finanza financial police said in a statement Wednesday.


    Investigators said the bust is the largest drug haul in the world. The pills carried the "Captagon" logo, which "distinguishes the 'drug of Jihad,'" according to the statement.

    12 Euro a pill seems a bit of a high valuation.

    Seeing as We are insisting on preserving the sole remaining Isis stronghold/ drug lab of Idlib as a safe haven for them, I hardly see how we have much right complain about this.

    It seems that you are confused about Syria. Perhaps it has escaped to your attention that ISIS are "freedom fighters" established years ago to destroy (not only) Syria govt and the whole country... ("pointless country"?)
