TEHRAN (Iran News) – The Islamic Republic of Iran has proved that it has never be frightened with the world hegemony’s bully and whenever it has stood firm against the bully, it has succeeded and this time the dispatch of the fuel tankers to Lebanon and earlier to Syria and Venezuela has been a proof for this claim.
According to reports, Iran’s first fuel tanker that set sail toward Lebanon two weeks ago has entered the Mediterranean Sea, as a second ship also begins its journey to assuage the sufferings endured by the Lebanese people under severe fuel shortages and American sanctions.
Data from TankerTrackers, a global tanker tracking website, showed that the first ship has already entered the Mediterranean, Iranian news outlets reported on Monday. Citing informed sources, Lebanon’s al-Manar television network also confirmed the report.
Amid threats from Zionists and U.S. sanctions, Iran decided to help Lebanon to overcome the fuel shortage what like it did in the past for Syria or Venezuela. Iran proved that if you stand firmly against the bully, the world hegemony will have to retreat and wait and see your courage. In other words, if there is a will, there is a way.
This humanitarian and brave move has consolidated Iran’s position among the Muslim and freedom-seeking nations especially in the resistant front countries.
Earlier an Iranian legislator said the Islamic Republic must supply needed fuel to countries that are members of the resistance front, so that those states would not be harmed in this regard and could ease their energy crises.
“We must offer any help we can to the resistance bloc, so that they would not face any problem for provision of fuel, which is among the basic needs of any country,” Hadi Beiginejad, a member of the Energy Commission at Iran’s Parliament, said.
Beiginejad, who was elaborating on Iran’s recent measure to send fuel tankers to Lebanon, added, “Selling oil derivatives and fuel, which have more customers, is easier than selling crude oil, whose buyers are limited.”
He described it as important to Iran to meet the needs of a strategic and friendly country like Lebanon.
“Countries like Lebanon, Syria, and Venezuela are very important to Iran, because they stood by our side in time of need. Therefore, we must take steps to solve these countries’ problems as much as we can,” the Iranian parliamentarian highlighted.
“Just as [late Syrian President] Hafez al-Assad firmly stood by Iran’s side during the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) and did not withhold any help, we must rush to assist countries like Syria and Lebanon, which are now in trouble,” he added.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been supportive of the Muslim and oppressed states and nations against the oppression of the world powers because one of the principles of the Islamic Republic is to help the oppressed people, especially the Muslims.
After helping Syrian government to survive against the pro-West terrorists, the Muslim world has trusted Iran’s power and they can now rely on Iran’s timely assistance either in provision of required goods or in military supervision.
Now the dispatch of fuel tankers to Lebanon after successful dispatch to Syria and Venezuela has shown Iran’s dare in encountering the West and Zionists’ bully and threat and actually the era of “war of fuel tankers” has begun. The West should accept the wills of nations and it is not in a position to decide the nations’ trade and fate.
On Monday Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh cautioned against any move targeting the tankers, saying that neither the U.S. nor any other country is in a position to stop legitimate trade between Iran and Lebanon.
“We are very serious about exercising our sovereignty and everyone should know that legitimate trade in this sphere is one of the basic principles of international law,” Khatibzadeh said.
Now we should wait and see more dispatches of fuel tankers to other countries and the U.S. and its allies should seat and watch how Iran continues its humanitarian moves or sales of its oil amid the West and Zionist’ anger.
The U.S. and its Western allies have currently got stuck in the Afghanistan quagmire and they are in a humiliating situation and the Taliban unveiled the truel face of the West that the Western countries are weak and unable to do anything when the nations and governments are determined to stand against them firmly.
According to reports, the second and third shipments of fuel to Lebanon will be imminent and the Islamic Republic of Iran continues to dictate its power and determination on the West and its enemies which try to bring it down but every time they fail.
