Israel contributes “to the spread of drugs among Palestinian youth”

Headline: “Report: The occupation is contributing effectively to the spread of the drug phenomenon in Jerusalem”
“A new report prepared by coordinator of the social department of the Palestinian NGO the Al-Maqdese for Society Development (MSD), Isam Jwehan, said that the Israeli occupation authorities are contributing to a large extent to the spread of drugs among Palestinian youth in Jerusalem in particular, and in the Palestinian territories in general.
He stated that the Jerusalem district is number one in terms of the number of users of various types of drugs, and that the number of drug users in the occupied Palestinian territories is estimated at 40,000-60,000, a third of them in the Jerusalem district. In second place, after Jerusalem and its environs, is the Ramallah and El-Bireh district, because of its proximity to Jerusalem. Next are Hebron and Bethlehem.”
