Roles reversed: Diesel is now smuggled from Lebanon to Syria


Prior to the Syrian revolution , red diesel fuel was smuggled from Syria  to Lebanon , because it was cheap but the sanctions against Syria have reversed the process… now diesel fuel  from Lebanon is being smuggled to Syria for use by the Syrian army tanks and trucks.

According to a report by Free Lebanon radio station  on Thursday Lebanon has increased diesel imports to accommodate the needs of the Syrian regime’s  armed  forces  because of the  international oil and arms embargoes against Syria.
