Haaretz: Truth is "Israel" deterred by Hezbollah
The Israeli newspaper says the Israeli occupation has very good reasons to strive for an agreement on maritime borders with Lebanon.
Israeli newspaper Haaretz tackled the Israeli occupation's maritime border agreement with Lebanon and considered that the balance tilted to Lebanese Hezbollah's side in this matter.
The newspaper indicated that "beneath the debate surrounding the maritime agreement with Lebanon, like gas deep under the seabed, simmers a repressed issue, whose potential for igniting and exploding is similar to that of a huge gas deposit: the fact that Israel is deterred by Hezbollah."
Haaretz said the "Israeli society is not interested in discussing the price of war with Hezbollah. This is a doomsday scenario. Thousands of missiles on Israeli cities. Tremendous destruction, cities in ruins, thousands of civilians killed, hundreds of thousands injured."
According to the Israeli newspaper, "Israel has very good reasons to strive for an understanding with Hezbollah or, unfortunately, for a balance of terror, because the trauma of another war against the organization will leave a scar so deep."
Lapid claims historic agreement, Netanyahu says 'historic submission'
Israeli occupation Prime Minister Yair Lapid announced on Tuesday that "Israel" has reached a historic agreement on maritime demarcation agreement mediated by the US.
"This is a historic achievement that will bolster Israel's security, bring billions into the Israeli economy and bring stability to the northern border," Lapid said in a statement.
Israeli media, soon after Lapid's statements, gave former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a platform to criticize the drafted agreement from a position of opposition.
The Israeli opposition leader argued that "this is not a historical agreement, but rather a historical submission, liquidation [in the commercial sense] one that pertains specifically to Lapid."
Former Israeli General: Hezbollah threatens, 'Israel' kneels
In the same context, Israeli former Brigadier General Amir Avivi said on Tuesday that Hezbollah has forced "Israel" to submit and kneel.
Avivi considered that Hezbollah forced "Tel Aviv" to accept Lebanon's terms in the border demarcation, according to the Israeli website 0404.
The former Brigadier General clarified that "Israel" is now witnessing a dangerous precedent whereby Hezbollah has threatened "Israel", and "Israel" has submitted to the threat especially now that it is close to holding Knesset elections in November.
The Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, affirmed on Tuesday that "we are going through decisive times in the issue of border demarcation and the extraction of oil and gas," noting that the demarcation process has been very difficult during the past few days.
The Resistance leader stressed that "until the agreement is signed, we must remain vigilant in light of the contradictory Israeli statements."
