The third Iranian tanker carrying fuel for Lebanon’s Hezbollah, has appeared on a satellite tracking system in the Gulf of Suez, TankerTrackers has reported on Friday.
The Lebanese Hezbollah announced in August that Iran will be sending diesel and gasoil to ease Lebanon’s energy crisis.
Earlier, the Iran-backed militia group began bringing tanker trucks carrying fuel from Iran. The first tanker ship carried the fuel to Syria and from there it crossed into Lebanon.
Hezbollah insists that some of the fuel will be distributed among hospitals and other public services, but the rest will be sold aiming at generating money for the Shiite militant organization.
The United States has sanctioned both Iran and Hezbollah.
