The Ministry of Interior said the General Directorate for Drug Control has managed to seize up to 20 million narcotic tablets, 420 kilograms of hashish and large quantities of psychotropic substances over the past eight months.

The number of cases registered during this period reached 1,031, while 1374 suspects were referred to the concerned bodies to take legal measures against them, the Ministry's Assistant Undersecretary for Criminal Security Affairs Major General Abdulhamid Al-Awadhi said in a press statement on Saturday. He added that 235 of the suspects were deported.

The current situation the region is going through contributes greatly to increasing attempts of drug trafficking towards Kuwait and the Gulf states, he noted. He said "our region is still targeted, and witnesses several breaches and trafficking operations carried out by some international gangs."

Security men are facing these gangs, he said, stressing the ministry's keenness on supporting all efforts exerted so as to combat drug. He affirmed that the State of Kuwait is combating this scourge decisively, referring to the importance international cooperation in combating the drug trade. On his part, Brigadier General Adel Hashash, head of the ministry's general department for relations and security, said in a similar statement that the ministry is paying much attention to the issues of drug to maintain society through combating the scourge that requires permanent awareness on its societal, security and economic risks.

He referred to the family's key role in protecting its children from the risks of the scourge and others.
