TEHRAN – The Directorate General of Lebanon’s Civil Aviation on Tuesday denied a report by Fox News claiming that an Iranian civil aviation company had been smuggling weapons into Lebanon through Beirut airport.

“The Directorate General of the Civil Aviation absolutely denies such claims, and asks media means for accuracy before publishing any news on the airport,” the statement read, according to the NNA.

The Fox News report alleged that Tehran is “trying to come up with new ways and routes to smuggle weapons from Iran to its allies in the Middle East, testing and defying the West’s abilities to track them down.”
