Drug Trafficking Reported in AlNeirab Camp, pro-Regime Militias Held Accountable

Reports of drug consumption and trafficking have increasingly emerged in AlNeirab Camp for Palestinian refugees, in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo. 

Over recent years, members of Liwaa AlQuds armed group, affiliated with the Syrian regime, have been accused of running networks for drug trafficking and prostitution in AlNeirab displacement camp and adjacent areas.

A number of civilians who spoke to AGPS on condition of anonymity said Liwaa AlQuds officers have been blackmailing prisoners’ and wanted persons’ wives. A girl was recently harassed by the militia.

Liwaa AlQuds has also been accused of transferring cannabis, tramadol and captagon to the camp. Scores of militiamen who were forced into military conscription with regime battalions consume drugs to overcome the terrifying scenes of bloodshed.

Drug distribution is often carried out by children aged below 18 and members of cash-strapped and vulnerable families who are exploited by illicit drug trafficking networks which are subject to drug prohibition laws.

Daily scenes of destruction and bloodshed in Syria forced dozens of helpless civilians, among them children, to consume drugs and sniff glue, among other life-threatening substances, as a means to get over the trauma inflicted by the unabated warfare. Drug use, which starts as a way to escape, quickly makes their life worse.
