Turkish security forces confiscated 128 kgs of hashish in an operation in Bingol province in eastern Turkey on Friday, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

Acting on a tip-off, the security forces found the hashish hidden in a private automobile at a gas station in Bingol province, the report said, adding that one suspected person was detained in connection with the illicit drugs.

On Thursday, Turkish security forces seized 443.5 kgs of hashish in two separate operations in the western province of Bursa and central Anatolian province of Kirikkale, and four suspected people were detained in connection with the drugs, it said.

Turkey has long been a key transit point along the drug smuggling route from Asia and Middle East to Europe.
