    just for precision's sake, the Lebanon-Israeli border is closed.

    no one can "legally" cross it, unless for a very good, authorized, specific reason. so this was already a pretty touchy situation, heroin or no heroin.

    think the last time it was actually open was in 1982, and this was during a very specific moment in time, during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon.
