Qatari authorities have been ever vigilant about the smuggling of illegal drugs into the country. Eagle-eyed officials have foiled many an attempt to transport such illegal wares in recent times.

Qatar’s Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced the foiling of another smuggling attempt on Friday.

The General Directorate of Drug Enforcement, in collaboration with the General Directorate of Coasts and Borders Security and the Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya), apprehended a substantial quantity of narcotics that was bound for Qatar.

The MoI said the interception took place after the prohibited drugs were dropped near Qatar’s coasts, with the intention of being smuggled into the country by sea.

“The Ministry of Interior reaffirms its commitment to diligently prevent any attempts to traffic such harmful substances into the country to safeguard society from the grave consequences of drug abuse,” said the ministry in a statement on its social media handle.
