IRAK 🇮🇶 : Iraqi border guards shoot down parasail in drug bust

Iraqi border guards reported shooting down a flying vehicle today that they said was being used to smuggle drugs. 

The Iraqi Security Media Cell reported June 3 that a pilot was flying the makeshift vehicle near Jirishan in the southern Basra province. The border guards opened fire, forcing the pilot to land and flee to “one of the neighboring countries.” They recovered one million pills of an unspecified drug during the incident.

Jirishan is close to Kuwait and Basra also borders Iran.
