Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah announced on Monday that the first ship of Iranian oil intended for Lebanon arrived at the Baniyas port in Syria on Sunday, after Hezbollah decided to have the ship dock there instead of Lebanon. The ship was recently identified as the FAXON by Tanker Trackers, a ship monitoring service. Nasrallah said the decision was made to have the ship dock in Baniyas in order "not to cause embarrassment to the Lebanese government." The Syrian government secured trucks for transporting the oil to Lebanon, according to Nasrallah. The oil is expected to arrive in the Beqaa valley area starting on Thursday and will be distributed to the rest of Lebanon from there afterwards.

Nasrallah stressed that the ships safely arrived, despite concerns by some that Israel would not allow the oil to reach Lebanon. "Some bet that Israel would not allow the ships to reach Lebanon, but they missed that the Israeli was in trouble," said Nasrallah. "The existing deterrence equation in Lebanon and the introduction of ships to Lebanon within this equation allowed the arrival of the first ship and the incoming ships as well."
