Army Raids House of Drug Kingpin Nouh Zoaiter in Bekaa
Lebanon's army intelligence staged a security day and carried out several raids in the Bekaa region in east Lebanon including residences of drug kingpin Nouh Zoaiter, VDL (100.5) said on Monday.
The army raided a number of houses that belong to Zoaiter in Hay al-Sharawneh but they did not find him, added VDL.
Zoaiter is one of the most prominent drug farmers and dealers and is wanted by the state on several arrest warrants.
Charges against him include drug smuggling, car theft, terrorism, arms trade, selling counterfeit money, and kidnapping.
He is also wanted by Interpol.
This is not the first time that Zoaiter manages to evade arrest as he has succeeded to do so for years.
