Alpha to Al Mayadeen: Israeli naval buoys used for espionage
Writer and researcher in political affairs Roni Alpha says the coming hours will show the Israeli occupation's position on the Lebanese observations.
The political writer and researcher, Roni Alpha, said on Sunday that the coming hours will reveal the Israeli enemy's position regarding the Lebanese remarks.
Speaking to Al Mayadeen about the proposal of demarcating the maritime borders between Lebanon and occupied Palestine, Alpha pointed out that there are suspicions that the Israeli Unit 8200 is using border buoys for espionage.
He stressed that Lebanon has all the elements to ensure the success of negotiations to obtain its oil and gas rights.
This comes after the Lebanese Presidency announced that President Aoun received a call from Hochstein, in which he briefed him on the recent results of the contacts on the demarcation of the maritime border with occupied Palestine.
The Presidency added that Hochstein confirmed to President Aoun the conclusion of the discussion rounds and the identification of remarks, stating that he will send the final version within a few hours.
In response, the Lebanese presidency, in its statement, said Lebanon will carefully examine the final version of Hochstein's proposal in preparation for taking the appropriate relevant decision.
Yesterday, Israeli occupation Security Minister Benny Gantz said "Israel" is prepared to defend its infrastructure whether a deal with Lebanon is signed or not.
Gantz warned that the military cost to Lebanon and Hezbollah "will be very grave" in case the Lebanese Resistance party attacked the Israeli occupation, claiming that "we are not eager for war but are prepared for one."
In the same context, the Israeli occupation rejected revisions requested by Lebanon to the US-mediated border demarcation proposal.
The official, announcing Israeli occupation Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s decision to reject the revision requests, warned that any further negotiations would cease should Hezbollah threaten the Karish gas rig.
"Lapid was briefed on the substantive changes Lebanon was seeking to make to the agreement and instructed his negotiating team to reject them," the official said, adding that the Israeli occupation's PM said "Israel would not compromise on its economic and security interests, even if it meant no deal would be reached anytime soon."
According to the Israeli official, "Israel will begin production of natural gas from its Karish field as soon as that is possible," warning that "if Hezbollah or anyone else attempts to cause harm to the rig or threaten Israel, the negotiations on an agreed maritime border will immediately stop and [Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed] Hassan Nasrallah will have to explain to the citizens of Lebanon why they will not have a natural gas rig in production or an economic future."
