Source to Al Mayadeen: Lebanon earned all its maritime borders rights
A Lebanese source concerned with the maritime border demarcation negotiations between Lebanon and "Israel" confirms that Lebanon obtained all its demands in the written response received by the US mediator Amos Hochstein.
"In the written proposal received by the Americans, Lebanon obtained all its demands," a Lebanese source concerned with the maritime borders' demarcation negotiations confirmed.
"Lebanon has not and will not give 'Israel' any security zone it previously demanded," the source noted.
This comes after Lebanon received the written proposal from the US mediator Amos Hochstein through US Ambassador Dorothy Shea regarding the demarcation of maritime borders.
In turn, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, stressed in a speech that "the importance of what is happening today is there being a written text from the mediating party that the President, Parliament Speaker, and the Prime Minister have received."
"We are before decisive days in the demarcation issue, and the position of the heads of the state will be clarified, as well as where things are headed," the Hezbollah chief underlined. "If the demarcation issue leads to a desired, good result, that will be due to unity, cooperation, and national solidarity," Nasrallah added.
Meanwhile, Israeli media said that "Nasrallah, succeeded in the battle of awareness that involved negotiations to demarcate the Lebanese southern maritime borders."
Sayyed Nasrallah "spoke this evening about negotiations with 'Israel' and did not utter a single threatening word; on the contrary, he expressed his hope that they would succeed and that everyone perceives Lebanon in its wisdom and unity,” writer and commentator on Middle East affairs in the Israeli newspaper Maariv, Jackie Houji, said through his account on Twitter.
"Has he become a moderate? No. He simply completed his mission successfully," he said.
For his part, writer and commentator on political affairs at Wallah!, Barak Rapid, said on his Twitter account: "A Western official source familiar with the negotiations between 'Israel' and Lebanon told me that the US envoy Amos Hochstein also handed 'Israel' the draft agreement on the maritime borders."
