’Israel’ Threatens Lebanon over Hezbollah, Natural Gas
Local Editor

Resuming its unstopping aggression, the Zionist entity threatened to invade Lebanon amid a recent spat over natural resources.

Avigdor Lieberman

Addressing the so-called Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University on Wednesday, "Israeli" War Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Lebanon's latest plans to drill in a disputed offshore oil and gas field known as Block 9 were "very, very challenging and provocative," according to Reuters.

In the same speech, Lieberman threatened to wage a full-scale war against Lebanon if Hezbollah launched any ‘attacks' against the ‘Israeli' regime. For its part, Hezbollah stressed it would defend Lebanon's natural resources at any cost.

"We reiterate our firm and unequivocal position in decisively confronting any aggression against our oil and gas rights, defending Lebanon's assets and protecting its wealth," Hezbollah told Newsweek in an email statement.

In the latest crisis, "Israel" warned foreign companies not to invest in Lebanese plans to explore the Block 9 offshore oil reserve located on the maritime border between the ‘Israeli'-occupied Palestinian territories and Lebanon.

Lebanon awarded bids last month to France's Total Sa, Italy's Eni SpA and Russia's Novatek PJSC to drill for oil and gas in blocks 4 and 9 within Lebanon's exclusive economic zone, but Lieberman claimed this was a "grave mistake" and "contrary to all the rules" because Block 9 belonged totally to "Israel", Bloomberg News reported.

Lieberman also threatened to respond to Hezbollah with a "full-strength" invasion, Hebrew newspaper Haaretz reported. He vowed, "If in ‘Israel' they sit in shelters, then in the next fighting all of Beirut will be in shelters." These comments have been met with fury back in the Lebanese capital.

"We need to be aware of what the "Israeli" enemy is plotting against Lebanon, especially with the support of those who are working internally and externally to provide a climate of harmony with the "Israeli" threats to attack Lebanon," Lebanese President Michel Aoun said Thursday in a statement, according to Lebanon's official National News Agency.

"Lebanon will counter these "Israeli" claims by diplomatic means, while asserting its right to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity by all the available means," he added.
