Although the ‎road between the two countries is not closed, due to the distance, the goods traded between ‎other countries and Lebanon are currently transported less by land. The main road between Iran and ‎Lebanon passes through Iraq and Jordan, which is not reliable due to the unfavorable conditions ‎in Iraq.
