Lebanese protesters block fuel shipments to Syria

Published: 02.13.13, 19:23 / Israel News

Protesters in Lebanon blocked the northern border crossing with Syria on Wednesday to stop fuel shipments they said were being used to resupply President Bashar Assad's military. Around 30 trucks were forced to stop on the Lebanese side of the border.


"Today we are seeing that the Syrian regime and Lebanese regime are transferring diesel to Syrian tanks," said a parliamentarian who joined protesters at the border. Facing European Union financial sanctions, Syria has relied increasingly on fuel trucked from neighboring Lebanon to make up for a fall in larger international shipments. (Reuters)
