The first Iranian fuel shipment will arrive in Lebanon by trucks through Syria “to avoid the sanctions-related complications,” media reports said.
Informed sources said that choosing Syria for the ship docking “has nothing to do with fears of an attack from Israel or the U.S.” but rather for internal considerations and “the unwillingness to implicate any allies.”
On the other hand, the sources indicated that “the shipment will reach a Syrian port and the fuel will be transported by trucks to Lebanon,” stressing that “the priority of distribution will be to hospitals.”
On a separate note, Arab Tawhid Party leader Wiam Wahhab told al-Jadeed TV that the Iranian ship is soon to arrive to Banias – a Syrian city in Tartous Governorate.
He said that “in a few days, the fuel will start arriving in Lebanon,” adding that “the warehouses have been chosen.”
“The market will soon be relieved,” Wahhab assured.
