BEIRUT (Reuters) – Hezbollah began bringing Iranian fuel into Lebanon via Syria on Thursday, its al-Manar TV said, a move the Shi’ite group says aims to ease a crippling energy crisis but which its opponents have said exposes the country to the risk of U.S. sanctions.

According to al-Manar TV, a convoy of 20 trucks transporting Iranian fuel oil entered Lebanon. Iran-backed Hezbollah claims that the vessel carrying fuel arrived in Syria Sunday.
