Fuel tankers carrying Iranian fuel enter Lebanon
Tankers Convoys carrying Iranian fuel entered the Lebanese territories on Thursday and arrived in Baalbeck, breaking the US blockade on the country.
There have been estimations that the Iranian fuel which has been delivered from Baniyas to Lebanon amounts to at least 3 million liters.
Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah announced on Monday that Hezbollah will be distributing the fuel oil on governmental hospitals and other vital facilities for free.
Nasrallah noted that the fuel oil will also be distributed at a low cost to other institutions across the country.
He said a second Iranian ship with fuel oil would arrive in Baniyas in a few days, with a third and fourth, respectively carrying gasoline and fuel oil, also due.
Daily life has been almost paralyzed in Lebanon as fuel dries up because the country lacks the dollars to pay for it.
The state-owned power company is generating only minimal electricity, leaving businesses and households almost entirely dependent on small, private generators that run on fuel oil. (ILKHA)
