Head of Free Patriotic Movement in Lebanon discusses natural gas
The head of the Free Patriotic Movement in Lebanon, Gibran Bassil, says that "Lebanon is in danger;" and discusses the extraction of gas from Lebanese territory.
The head of the Free Patriotic Movement in Lebanon, Gibran Bassil, said that natural gas must be extracted from both the Israeli-controlled Karish field and Lebanon's Qana field, saying none will be extracted without the other while calling for dialogue in Lebanon.
It is noteworthy that the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said in a speech, during the electoral festival in southern Lebanon on May 9, that "the resistance will protect the extraction of Lebanese oil and gas," noting that "'Israel' wants Lebanon to give up the most important power" in the extraction of its oil and gas.
Nasrallah stressed that the Lebanese have a resistance that can face the Israeli entity if prevents Lebanon from drilling for energy, noting that "the Americans are negotiating the borders because they know Lebanon has the resistance."
Bassil: Syria is a neighbor
In addition, Bassil considered, during a festival for the Free Patriotic Movement that the former US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, David Schenker, whom he described as "Maestro Schenker", admitted, "for his participation in the collapse of our country and is pleased with our pain."
Bassil said that "Lebanon is in danger and it is our responsibility to save it," stressing that "Syria will remain our neighbor and we do not accept interference in its affairs."
Ahead of the parliamentary elections in Lebanon, the former US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, David Schenker, made serious statements regarding the American role in the country, accelerating the financial collapse, and the administration’s exploitation of the October 17 movement to distort the image of Hezbollah and weaken it with its allies.
