Israeli customs officers seized 38 different shipments of illegal drugs at Ben-Gurion Airport Sunday, the Israeli Customs spokesman's office announced. The seizure, which included packages mailed from the Netherlands and Spain, is the largest one-day drug bust in Israel's history.
The operation captured 1000 tabs of LSD, more than half a kilo of cannabis tea, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, marijuana, mescaline, and other drugs.
Drug-sniffing dogs from the Custom Administration's canine unit identified the suspect packages.
