Social Media Users Celebrate Arrival of Iranian Diesel Tankers to Lebanon
Social media users celebrate the arrival of the Iranian diesel tanker trucks to Lebanon via Syria, using several hashtags, such as "The Convoy of the Truthful Promise," and "Victory Convoys."
The convoy of "The Truthful Promise," as social media users named it, entered this morning the Baalbek-Hermel area, incoming from Syria, awaiting distribution through a mechanism previously announced by Hezbollah.

Residents of the towns of the Baalbek-Hermel area adhered to the wishes of the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, not to gather to receive the diesel tanker trucks.
Instead, they welcomed the trucks by raising support banners and watching on sideroads while sprinkling roses and rice.
On social media platforms, the situation was different. Users celebrated the event using several hashtags, including "The Convoy of the Truthful Promise," and "Victory Convoys."

Tweeters also used Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's phrase on August 15, when he said that diesel will enter Lebanon openly during the day.
