Iranian oil arrives in Lebanon via Syria, Hezbollah

Tankers enter Bekaa, stronghold of movement under Nasrallah

16 September, 12:50

    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, 16 SET - A much-awaited load of Iranian oil requested that the Lebanese armed and political movement Hezbollah had requested of its regional ally to "help the Lebanese" hold up under a prolonged lack of fuel for power stations and generators arrived Thursday morning in Lebanon.

    The first tankers coming from Syria crossed the border with Lebanon between the Syrian plains of Qusayr, under the control of Shia militias, and the city of Hermel, also under the control of Hezbollah. Hezbollah's al-Manar television station and other Lebanese media have been widely publicizing the news, which analysts call "symbolic" in terms of quantity but which in any case serves Hezbollah's desire to show the population its support for "the Lebanese people" and not only the Shia community.

    "We have shown that we can break the siege imposed by the US," the spokesman for Hezbollah in the Bekaa, Hajj Ahmad Rayai, said. (ANSAmed).
