Palestinian police confront human skulls used in drug trade



La Policía palestina capturó a una banda que usaba cráneos humanos en el tráfico de drogas

Skull smuggling drug dealers arrested in West Bank in what officials are calling a criminal ring.

Four members of West Bank criminal gang have been arrested and charged with digging up bodies and selling the skulls for use in manufacturing drugs like heroin and cocaine. Capt. “M”, a Palestinian police officer speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment on the case, explained to The Media Line that the body parts, which can bring as much as $4,000 each, are often ground up and used to add to the weight of drugs sold on the street or according to some, can be snorted on their own.

“They take the human skulls and they crush it to make a powder, then mix it with heroin or cocaine to make the amount bigger to charge more money.” The practice is rife in Latin America.

If the skull powder is white, the dealers will add the powder to cocaine and if the skull powder is darker, it is added to heroin, the officer said.

“[Drug dealers] want to dilute the drug,” Professor Francesca Levi-Schaffer of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, told The Media Line. “Sometimes they use substances that can cause damage. If you inject talc – a toxic mineral — for example, one can die immediately. Human bones and skull are absolutely not toxic.”

According to Majed Mohammad Mustafa A’loosh, the director of the Al-Sadiq Al-Taieb Association for the Social Awareness of the Dangerous Outcomes of Drug Abuse and Alcohol Use, based in Ramallah, sniffing a ground up skull can also get a user high.

“It happened before, during the war, when the Iraqi government was bombing Israel and we were all under siege,” A’loosh told The Media Line. “So, those people who wanted heroin dug up the bodies and tried to smash the heads and sniffed them.”

Originally used as a painkiller, heroin, also known as diamorphine, is a highly addictive opiate that users often inject. The drug is made from poppy plants and is mass produced in Afghanistan and is typically transported through Iraq and Pakistan. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), most heroin is seized in the Middle East as well as in South West Asia.
