HAMAS terrorists unleashed their brutal fury on Israel while pumped with a drug previously used by ISIS to make them “feel invincible” as they slaughtered innocent Israelis.

A series of grim atrocities have followed the initial assault, with reports of Hamas terrorists beheading babies and burning Israelis alive.
As sickening details continue to emerge of Hamas’ barbaric assaults, new reports have suggested that some of the killers may have been fueled by Captagon and used it to feel a sense of “euphoria” throughout their savage attack.
Simultaneously, the drug would have kept the murderers highly alert for extended periods of time while suppressing their appetite.
Footage has emerged on X, formerly known as Twitter, showing bags of white powder – similar to cocaine – in the back of a Hamas vehicle, although it is unclear what specific drug it is.
The video caption reads: “Documentation taken by a friend of mine in the surrounding settlements: the terrorists arrived with bags of cocaine to fuel their satanic urge.”
Captagon, also known as “poor man’s cocaine” is a psychostimulant that is made of a combination of amphetamine and theophylline.
The drug came into the mainstream in 1961 and was used for around 25 years as a milder alternative to amphetamines.
However, it is highly addictive – and became illegal in most countries in 1986.
The drug keeps users awake for long periods of time while providing a rush of energy and euphoria – which is why it has also been dubbed “chemical courage”.
Captagon gained notoriety in 2015 when it was discovered to be used by ISIS members to numb their fears prior to carrying out terrorist operations.
Gaza, in particular, became a popular market for the drug, especially among addicted youngsters.
In Syria, addiction to Captagon is rife within the ranks of ISIS, according to a probe into the “jihadi drug” by the Saudi Pharmaceutical Society.
Suicide bombers, like Manchester terrorist Salman Abedi, are said to be pumped full of drugs before they are sent on a mission to numb their senses and turn them into unforgiving killing machines.
The drugs often leave extremists suffering from a crippling addiction, further boosting their reliance on their cruel jihadi masters.
The discovery of the 350,000 tablets raised fears ISIS could be forming mafia-style organised crime gangs in France.
Just three years later, Italian cops seized over £872million worth of Captagon – believed to have been produced by the terror organisation to help fund ghastly attacks across the globe.
Military police discovered a staggering 14 tonnes of amphetamines stashed inside cylinders in three shipping containers.
Police Colonel Domenico Napolitano called the discovery of 85 million pills, in the southern port of Salerno, the biggest amphetamine seizure ever.
Napolitano said on Italian state radio that investigators believe the drug production provides the deadly terror group with vital revenue for its militant activities.
“It is known that ISIS finances its terrorist activities in large part with the trafficking of synthetic drugs produced largely in Syria, which has become the leading world producer of amphetamines in recent years,” police said.
Since last year, countries that had large amounts of Captagon pass through their borders have ramped up efforts to curb the flow from Syria.
Last February, Jordan’s army said it had killed 30 smugglers since the start of the year and prevented attempts to smuggle 16million Captagon pills into the country.
And in February this year, a man was arrested at Abu Dhabi airport in the United Arab Emirates after he tried to smuggle 4.5million Captagon tablets in cans of green beans.
It also stated that Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed militia support the industry “and in doing so fuel regional instability and creating a growing addiction crisis across the region”.
Drugs have also been seen used on fighters further afield in Russia, as it was last year revealed that desperate Russian commanders were resorting to drugging their own demoralised soldiers to stop them from running away.
A series of intercepted messages and phone calls shared by the Ukrainian Security Service, saw an exasperated Russian commander tell another he is “shooting up” his reluctant troops to make them fight in the war in Ukraine.
JIHADI ‘CHEMICAL COURAGE’: What is ISIS ‘euphoria’ drug Captagon?
Captagon, once a popular drug used by ISIS terrorists, is a type of amphetamine that is now reportedly being taken by Hamas fighters.
It is one of several brand names for the drug compound fenethylline hydrochloride.
The drug was first invented in the 1960s to treat depression and sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy.
Amphetamine drugs stimulate the central nervous system, increasing alertness, and boosting concentration and physical performance.
Captagon keeps users awake for long periods of time and can make them feel hugely energetic and happy.
The drug was banned in the 1980s when scientists found Captagon’s addictive properties outweighed its clinical benefits, so the drug slipped into obscurity in Europe.
But it remains a popular recreational drug in the Middle East which explains why the drugs are smuggled into Syria from Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey by extremists.
