The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group gives hallucinating drugs to young men in the city of Mosul to send them to suicide missions, a senior Iraqi legislator revealed on Monday.
The ISIL commanders in Mosul use hallucinating drugs to make the youth addicted to prepare them for conducting suicide attacks after they lose their minds,” Iraq’s Nineveh MP Nahleh al-Habbabi told FNA on Monday.
She noted that there are vast regions between Nineveh border province and Syria that are used by the ISIL terrorists for importing narcotics and hallucinating drugs into Mosul
“The ISIL uses the Kurdish city of Kobani in Syria for importing narcotics to Mosul,” al-Habbabi added.
In January 2014, the local Syrian sources disclosed that the ISIL had embarked on synthesizing different ecstasy and other-manufactured drugs in the Northwestern province of Aleppo to further stimulate its members for terrorist missions across Syria.
According to the sources, one month after the ISIL took control of a pharmaceutical factory in Aleppo, it started synthesizing a chemical-compound drug known as ‘Meth’ (Methamphetamine), known to be one of the strongest and most dangerous narcotics in the world, in the western countries.
The chemically-manufactured drugs are not exported to other Arab countries or the Persian Gulf littoral states, but they are merely given to the ISIL terrorists to hallucinate them for operations.
Aleppo residents told FNA that those who take such drugs suffer mental imbalance and embark on frantic acts like killing, beheading and mutilating others (seen in many footages taken from the terrorists’ savage acts in Syria).
The local sources said in a bid to encourage the terrorists to use the hallucinating drugs, the Salafi and Wahhabi muftis have issued some fatwas (religious decrees) to endorse the narcotics which give courage to them as “halal”.
In early November 2013, a Syrian military source said that a unit of the Syrian armed forces eliminated an armed militant group that tried to infiltrate from Tal al-Haradin into Kanaker in Damascus Countryside and seized narcotic pills and weapons.
The source told the state news agency that the seized weapons included a machinegun base mounted on a 4WD car, sniper rifles, automatic rifles, BKC machineguns and RPG launchers, in addition to seizing narcotic pills and leaflets for al-Nusra Front.
