Hezbollah is storing huge quantities of Iranian weapons, missiles, and explosives in Beirut’s airport sources the UK's Telegraph reported on Sunday, quoting whistleblowers. 

Hezbollah operatives transported armaments on flights from Iran after bribing customs officials, among them long, medium and short-range missiles.

Beirut airport is a commercial airport. The Lebanese government does not seem very concerned about the movement of weapons and these illegal stockpiles.

But in reality, Lebanon lost its sovereignty many years ago.

The Lebanese Minister of Labor and Transport claimed Sunday evening at an urgent press conference that the information published in the the Telegraph is incorrect, and invited the media to visit the place.

The minister said "We invite all the media and ambassadors to visit all the airport facilities tomorrow and inspect them. We are waiting for the media tomorrow at 10:30 a.m., the invitation is open to everyone." He threatened to file a lawsuit against the newspaper.

The Lebanese authorities are lying.

Hezbollah will have the entire night to evacuate its military equipment.
