Hezbollah Threatens Occupied Offshore Gas Rigs with Missiles [Photos]
Hezbollah published flyers and a video regarding the contested marine border territory, threatening the Zionist natural gas drilling rigs with missiles; terror group's combative words came following statements by Lebanese politicians iterating similar position, objection to construction of border fence.
Hezbollah began disseminating flyers Tuesday quoting a recent speech by Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in which he clarified that Lebanon will not forfeit its rights for operations in its exclusive economic maritime zones.
The flyers also contained an overt threat to the occupation entity, saying, "Whoever harms gas and oil sites in Lebanese economic waters, their own sites will be harmed, and they know Lebanon is fully capable of doing so."
A video that accompanied the flyers presented a photo of Zionist war minister Avigdor Lieberman and his recent statements regarding the "Israeli" claims of ownership of the contested area straddling the Palestinian-Lebanese maritime border.
According to "Israeli" media, not only Hezbollah raked in political capital over drilling rights in the contested area, nicknamed Block 9, but also three of Lebanon's most senior political figures-President Michel Aoun, Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri-made a joint statement Tuesday after a meeting in the Beirut president palace reaffirming Lebanon's ownership of that area.
