Rome, Italy – Footage was released on Friday showing Italian police seizing around 24 million opiate tablets.
The vast quantity of opiate tablets were discovered at the container port Gioia Tauro in the southern Calabria region.
The tablets reportedly belonged to ISIS and were going to be sold to help finance the terrorist organization.
The drugs sales were “managed directly by Islamic State [ISIS] to finance the terrorist activities planned and carried out around the world,” Reggio Calabria’s chief prosecutor Federico Cafiero De Raho said.
“Part of the illegal profit from their sale would have been used to finance extremist groups in Libya, Syria and Iraq,” he said.
