BEIRUT, (SANA) – The US Counterpunch website cited a Libyan researcher, Hassan Diab, who has been working with a group of American and international lawyers preparing a case against NATO to be filed with the International Criminal Court that he and three of his friends actually saw the ship Lutfallah II being loaded with weapons in Benghazi, Libya.
The website correspondent Franklin Lamb quoted Hassan as saying that " it is well known at the docks that Qatar and Saudi Arabia control a total of five warehouses in the area of Benghazi & Misrata and supplied the weapons and money to hire the Lutfallah II container vessel."
Lamb added that Libyans and foreign dock workers at Benghazi Port, who observed the Lutfallah II being loaded, saw three containers filled with 150 tons of weapons put onboard, although the initial plan, according to the owner of the boat, was to ship as many as 15 containers whose shipment is estimated at more than 2000 tons of weapons.
The Lebanese Army seized Lutfallah II in the Lebanese territorial waters. The ship was loaded with weapons to be sent to gunmen in Syria, to stoke the crisis and shed more Syrian blood.
