Upon the orders of Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, Al-Amana Oil Company announced, on Tuesday in a statement, the mechanism according to which it will provide diesel oil freely or sell it.
The statement provided phone numbers for all the offices concerned with regulating the distribution process in all the Lebanese counties, calling on all those who match the required conditions to contact those offices.
Announcing the arrival of the first diesel ship in Banyas airport, Sayyed Nasrallah indicated, on Monday in a televised speech, that the cisterns loaded with the fuel material will enter Lebanon on Thursday.
Hezbollah leader pointed out that the Party does not want to impose its oil imports on the Lebanese, adding that only those interested can contact the concerned cadres in order to obtain the imported fuel. In this concern, Sayyed Nasrallah explained that that Hezbollah will donate diesel over one month to the governmental hospitals, nursing and elderly centers, orphanages, centers of the disabled, state water companies, the municipalities in need of running well pumps, the Red Cross, and the Civil Defense.
Sayyed Nasrallah added that diesel will be sold to the pharmaceutical and serums factories, mills, bakeries, supermarkets, and private power companies at a certain price which will be lower than the cost, adding that Hezbollah and Iran will bear a part of the financial burden in this regard.
Denying any intention to make financial profits out of the oil profits, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the oil imports will be sold in exchange for the Lebanese pound.
Hezbollah is not costing the Lebanese treasury fresh dollars, Sayyed Nasrallah said.
