“Based on the reference of the Attorney Appeals general in Nabatiyeh, Judge Ramzi Farhat, a patrol from the General Directorate of State Security raided Fares station in Nabatiyeh area, after social media circulating about storing fifty thousand liters of diesel.

After examining the station’s tanks and the bills related to the purchase of diesel, it was found that in July and August, the station received a quantity not exceeding ten percent of what was rumored, and it sold this quantity to water tanks and agricultural tractors, and its tanks contained only 700 liters of gasoline and 400 liters of diesel.
