Ministry of Social Affairs seminar: Israel spreads drugs in order to destroy Palestinian youth

“Under the auspices of the Ministry of Social Affairs, a one-day seminar [was held in] Izariyeh, about the drugs plague. [PA] Jerusalem governor Adnan Husseini said: ‘Unfortunately, the number of [drug] addicts and users in the city of Jerusalem and its environs is more than 15,000. This is part of the systematic attack of the occupation state (i.e., Israel), which seeks to destroy the [younger] Palestinian generation, to drown it in a cycle of violence and alienation from national identity, and to wage war against morality and good character.’ Executive Director of the Administration for Social Affairs, Badran Badir ... called to invest additional efforts in order to diminish the scope of this phenomenon, which is impacting on our people and on its strength, and which the occupation [Israel] is exploiting for its own purposes.”
