    Massive ‘ISIS drug bust’ in Italy connected to the Syrian regime, not the terrorist group, analysts argue

    When Italian authorities announced last week that they had seized 15.4 tons of counterfeit Captagon produced by ISIS in Syria to fund terrorism, it was lauded as one of the largest drug busts in history.

    However, many are now questioning the narrative with claims that the drugs stemmed from the Syrian regime and its much more extensive network of smuggling partners.

    The stash of 84 million pills, valued at an estimated $1.12 billion in market value and bound for distribution in Europe by “different organized crime groups,” was so aptly concealed in three container ships that airport scanners did not detect them, Commander Domenico Napolitano of the Naples financial police told the press.
