The cause of the explosion that took place late on Saturday is not clear yet.
"Our teams have transported 20 dead bodies and 79 injured from the fuel tanker explosion in #AKKAR to hospitals in the area," the Lebanese Red Cross said on Sunday.
Videos shared on social media showed a large fire at the blast site.
Lebanon is currently experiencing a severe fuel shortage and the past week has seen multiple incidents of tankers being hijacked.
Hospitals have warned that they are low on fuel and may be forced to shut down.
