BEIRUT: Security forces and Health Ministry inspectors raided Wednesday a residential home and a warehouse where unlicensed medications were allegedly being manufactured in the central Bekaa Valley.
The apartment and warehouse in the town of Majdal Anjar are reportedly owned by Palestinian national Nader Mohammad Zeidan.
It wasn’t clear whether Zeidan was arrested during the raid or if he was still at large.
The security forces confiscated equipment and raw materials used to manufacture the drugs, along with cardboard packages bearing forged medical trademarks.
