PA TV: Israel "targets our youth" with drugs

Official PA TV program Speak Up episode about the increase in drug use among youth, mainly in Jerusalem.
Guests on the program included District Deputy Governor of Jerusalem Abdallah Siyam, Commander of the Narcotics Division in the Jerusalem District Yasser Izzat and an anonymous youth from the street.
Commander of the Narcotics Division in the Jerusalem District Yasser Izzat: “On the subject of Jerusalem: To tell the truth, Jerusalem is in danger. On the subject of Jerusalem, the occupation has stolen the people – that is, [it] stole the land and now it is stealing the people by destroying them with drugs.”
Youth: “With all the means you can talk about, you won’t succeed in stopping this phenomenon [of spread of drugs], because it is certainly supported by the occupation and the occupation supports the entrance of [drugs] into Palestinian land.”
PA TV host: “A combined effort is necessary [to solve] this problem and to get rid of it, for it is a great disaster, and it is part of the Israeli occupation, which always targets our youth in order to distract them from the Palestinian issue. .”
