WEST BANK (Anadolu) – A former Zionist military official said, Tuesday, that the occupying regime made “concessions” to Lebanon for reaching an agreement to resolve their maritime dispute to avoid an escalation.
Amos Yadlin, the former head of the occupying regime’s military espionage division, said the occupying regime was showing flexibility regarding the disputed maritime dispute with its neighbor.
He stressed that the occupying regime has abandoned several points to get out of the difficult situation it is in, without providing further details.
Yadlin said the occupying regime should start producing gas from the Karish field.
“You can wait a few days, let’s give the Americans several days, and I am ready to give them weeks, but not more than that,” he said.
According to a report by Hebrew Walla news site, the Zionist regime has raised the state of alert and ordered its troops to prepare for any scenario following a warning by Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement to target the offshore Karish gas drilling rig.
On Saturday, Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned the Zionist regime’s extraction of gas from the Karish gas field before Lebanon obtained its rights is a “red line.”
“We will not allow the extraction of oil and gas from the Karish field before Lebanon obtains its rightful demands…Zionist officials said the extraction from Karish will take place in September, but they postponed it. The important thing is that there is no extraction from the Karish field before Lebanon obtains its rightful demands;” Nasrallah told crowds gathered for the Arbaeen commemoration, which marks the end of the 40-day mourning period for the seventh-century killing of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
“All enemy threats do not affect us or shake a hair from our beard. We give negotiations a chance, but our eyes and our missiles are on Karish,” he added.
