A recent Al-Manar TV report on the drug problem in the Gaza Strip claimed that the quantities of narcotic pills and bricks of hashish recently destroyed indicate "that the youth of Gaza are being targeted from several directions." Ashraf Abu Sido, Head of Legal Affairs in the Anti-Drug Unit, said that "global intelligence agencies, like the Israeli occupation, are operating behind the scenes," and General Nasser Sleiman, Head of the Military Courts, said that "the occupation benefits greatly when our youth become addicted." The report aired on October 22, 2018.
