The Volcano of Rage Operation announced that the Customs Office at Misrata International Airport was capable of seizing a shipment of narcotics arriving from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

They indicated that the shipment consisted of more than 201,000 pills of the banned ‘Tamol X’ tablets, which were confiscated and those involved in the smuggling network arrested, with the file being transferred to the Public Prosecution.

The operation added that “these actions come under the unscrupulous role of the UAE in supporting turmoil in Libya, following its failure to control Tripoli by supporting Haftar with finances, weapons and mercenaries.”
