SUNDAY SCREENING: The Drug Fuelled Conflict In Syria

21st Century Wire says…

Our weekly documentary film, curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE. 

This film offers one particular inside look into what could be described as ‘Syria’s War Drug’. Undercover reporters offer a look inside production of the amphetamine-based street narcotic, Captagon, the powerful drug being used by terrorists and “rebel” fighters in Syria.
