Member of the Loyalty to the Resistance bloc, Hizbullah MP Hassan Ezzeddine, has said that “there is a complete story about the ammonium nitrate ship that entered the port of Beirut.”
“The story could be published at any moment in the media so that all people will get to know what happened,” Ezzeddine said.
He went on to say that “there are reports by international and local security agencies about the port blast, starting from the moment the ship, loaded with nitrates, entered the territorial waters until it unloaded its cargo.”
He also questioned the role of UNIFIL, “who are present at the sea round-the-clock,” asking them to say how the ship entered Lebanon and how they searched it.
“Where did it stop the moment of its entry? Where did it unload its cargo? For whom? Where did it come from? And to where was it heading,” Ezzeddine asked.
“We are keen on truth, justice and fairness,” he said, but added that his party does not accept “any attempt of politicization.”
He also pointed out that the U.S. is “still considering the investigation into the port blast one of the tools it is planning to keep open in order to use it in the (Lebanese parliamentary) elections against its opponents.”
