Iran rejects claims of sending missiles to Lebanon

September 4, 2018

TEHRAN – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Tuesday rejected a report by Fox News that accused Iran of smuggling arms into Lebanon.

“Broadcasting such fake news has become common these days and weeks, which shows that the psychological war by anti-Iran centers has been intensifying,” Qassemi said in a statement, ILNA reported.

Also on Saturday, Qassemi dismissed a Reuters report that Iran was sending missiles to Iraq, stressing that it is an “imagined, meaningless, and ludicrous” claim.

He said the claim only serves to spread Iranophobia in the region and negatively influence Iran’s foreign relations.
