Hi,
     I am having a doubt regarding force closure of channel. Suppose A->B
there is an htlc which has been established for transfering fund. Now
suppose for some unfortunate reason B doesnt have the witness to resolve
htlc and the mean time A suffers crash fault. Then can B close the channel
given that it has no way out of resolving the htlc due to lack of witness?
